The financing of co-operative housing or any community housing has become more and more of a challenge over recent decades.
Thursday, November 17, 2022, 7:00 – 8:30 am PDT
The reasons for this relate both to housing market economics and how willing governments are to support co-op housing development as a matter of public policy. The outcome is that it has become more and more difficult to develop co-op housing that members can afford to live in.
Co-operative housing organizations and policy makers are responding to these challenges in different ways, as financing affordable housing development using only conventional financing is becoming difficult or impossible.
In this member forum we will look at creative financing solutions that are rising from the challenges of raising capital. We have invited uests from England, Canada and Catalonia to speak about the financing mechanisms they are using to develop housing co-operatives.
We will send you a link to access the online event closer to the date.
