Session Description: Access to affordable housing remains a critical need in underserved communities across South Carolina, and the state’s community-based organizations are uniquely positioned to develop safe, decent, and affordable rental and home-ownership opportunities for low-to-moderate income individuals and families that will not be subject to oppressive market-rate housing prices and gentrification in the future. Join us for a 2-day interactive class where you will learn the art and science behind developing single-family and multi-family housing projects using proven strategies, tools, and guidance from three Community Development Corporations: Homes of Hope, Inc. and Community Assistance Providers, Inc. Participants will walk away with actionable steps to start a housing development project in their service area and the tools to analyze your project for fiscal sustainability.
Bring your laptop and examples of actual development ideas you are thinking of doing in your communities. Minimum of Excel 2007 must be loaded.
