Community Scholars in Affordable Housing


 

An Innovative Community of Practice

This innovative program is designed to familiarize emerging leaders with best practices in community development and affordable housing policy and practice in the United States. 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 in a “community of practice” model. Participants will have the chance to acquire skills and build networks that will lead to enhanced opportunities in the field of affordable housing. We hope you will join the fifth cohort of Community Scholars!
