MAY 19th I 9:30 AM
The Church was pleased to host the Affordable Community Housing Convening. The East End is grappling with a housing shortage and a crisis of affordability. Affordable community housing for workers and their families is critical to keep the East End vibrant and our local economy thriving.
To unpack this complex issue, The Church brought together community leaders, legislators, developers, and financial industry to explore some of the key issues at stake. We will review current efforts to address affordability in the East End, discuss solutions developed in similar communities nationally, and address the role the cultural community can play in these efforts.
A full schedule of events can be found below.
We understand busy schedules! Please come for as much of the day as you are able.
The Affordable Community Housing Convening is sponsored by Community Capital Management and co-organized by the Blue Rider Group at Morgan Stanley.
