Event Details

The City, State, and Federal governments have provided subsidies for affordable housing for decades. However, affordable housing is not built by these agencies. They are built by developers. Many years ago, afforable housing was built based on expediency, which resulted in housing of innefficient quality. Today, such housing meets or exceeds most sustainability standards and these featured developers were among the leaders behind this change. Come listen to these accomplished leaders discuss the progress made in this industry to provide high-quality, sustainable housing.


Our speakers will include:
