The Great Recession and the corresponding collapse of the housing market have had far-reaching effects on communities across the country. Poverty rates continue to grow and neighborhoods that once enjoyed exciting prospects for large- scale, new, affordable housing developments now find themselves struggling with foreclosed homes, distressed properties, and unfinished subdivisions. 
 
At the same time, local governments have seen their tax bases shrink drastically, federal programs are facing times of austerity, and nonprofits are struggling to address their communities’ acute needs with limited resources.  
 
With nonprofits and local governments both trying to do more with less, Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) commissioned the Urban Institute to crystallize the tools Habitat affiliates -- and other nonprofits like them -- need to build strong, sustainable collaborations to meet communities’ post-recession challenges. In conjunction with the release of the full Urban Institute report and corresponding research brief, a panel of experts will discuss the findings from this work and their implications for local and national policy and practice.  
 
The event will be webcast. Tune in 15 minutes prior to the event on our website

Lunch will be provided at 11:30 a.m. The forum begins promptly at noon.
