You'll learn about:

  • How to create, nurture, and sustain a successful public-private partnership to preserve affordable housing developments that promote neighborhood revitalization 

  • Basic concepts related to planning, underwriting, and developing housing preservation projects

  • How to apply planning principles to housing preservation transactions

  • Resources and tools for advanced learning 


Using the combined 100 years of experience of a four-person panel including a NYC based national lender/underwriter for affordable housing/community development, a planner/appraiser/market analyst/ real estate consultant (AICP), a NYC area Licensed Planner/Development Consultant, and an acquisition/underwriter for a equity syndicator specializing in housing preservation,  this panel will discuss methods creating successful private public partnerships for preserving housing that act as a catalyst for neighborhood revitalization.

The goal will be to provide Planners with a basic understanding of how to create and sustain public private partnerships that foster neighborhood revitalization through housing preservation.  Through the use of PowerPoint presentations and a full panel discussion planners will learn the essence of successful partnerships and through discussion of housing preservation case studies techniques gain an understanding of techniques for housing preservation. Provision of the PowerPoints and/or hand-outs will include links to specific standards, tools and resources from leading housing industry associations for more advanced learning.
