Join NCBA CLUSA and experts from across the cooperative housing sector for a virtual briefing on Monday, December 14 from 2-3 p.m. EST.
By contributing to sustainable, stable housing opportunities, cooperative housing is an important part of the affordable housing toolkit—especially in communities historically discriminated against by lending institutions. And as the effects of COVID-19 continue to reverberate, worsening the affordable housing crisis in the U.S., cooperative housing is more critical than ever.
Housing cooperatives have been underutilized in recent decades despite a proven track record in communities of all types: in both urban and rural settings; among specific demographics, including seniors, veterans, students; and in many different forms, including limited equity housing cooperatives, multi-family cooperatives, and manufactured housing communities. This webinar will address the current work by community and economic development organizations to address housing challenges using cooperatives, as well as policy barriers and opportunities going forward to address the shortage of affordable housing.
Moderated by NCBA CLUSA President and CEO Doug O’Brien, this webinar features the following panelists:
President and Chief Lending Officer
National Cooperative Bank
ROC Program Manager
Urban Homesteading Assistance Board
