Solutions for Housing Communications 2015 Convening
April 7-8, 2015
Gaining community acceptance for affordable housing has long been a sticking point in developing successful communities. National and local polling data often show support for solutions to homelessness and housing affordability challenges, but when it comes to siting, neighbors often balk at the prospect of affordable housing being built nearby. Community opposition can create delays that put developments in jeopardy, and make it tougher for the next affordable development to succeed.
NHC's Solutions for Housing Communications 2015 Convening connected affordable housing developers, advocates, funders and government officials for panels, workshops and round-table discussions on challenges and opportunities in community acceptance. Together we learned, discovered best practices for countering community opposition and explored creative new approaches to meeting this perennial challenge.
