Travel with us back to a time before the economic downturn of 2008. We will explore the housing market of today and look into the future, now that post-recession demand is driving exciting programs and initiatives. This back-to-the-future phenomenon is especially evident in the multifamily housing space. Our high-powered lineup of presenters will bring you up to speed faster than a DeLorean.

Our day will include the popular Heard on the Hill discussion as well as engaging panel presentations, including:

    • RADical Developments: The Latest in Rental Assistance Demonstration Projects
    • Current Fair Housing Problems in Housing Management
    • Demographic Trends in Multifamily Housing: Past, Present, and Future
    • Strategies for Year 15 Issues
    • Multifamily Housing Bonds – Looking into the Future
