We co-facilitate this innovative program launched in 2014 and is led by the University of Miami Office for Civic and Community Engagement. It is designed to familiarize local leaders with best practices in community development and affordable housing policy. The program is open to interested professionals working in non-profit, for-profit, and government sectors including development, real estate, finance, design, public administration, community and economic revitalization or related fields.
The program will explore techniques and concepts in the development of affordable housing and will discuss special issues facing South Florida, including funding, design, special-needs populations, homeownership, advocacy, markets, and engaging stakeholders. Sessions will feature local and national experts in affordable housing and community development, as well as peer-to-peer learning. Participants will have the chance to acquire skills and build networks that will lead to enhanced opportunities in the field of affordable housing.
