The registration for this event is now closed.
Despite significant challenges—including the lingering effects of the foreclosure crisis and Great Recession, an increase in concentrated poverty and declining public support—community development organizations are implementing exciting and innovative new models that have the potential to significantly improve lives and communities. In this environment, the role of community capital to close gaps, spur private investment and development, and re-establish market value has come to the forefront.
Participants in this forum will explore the key principles that foster community revitalization. We will highlight the successes and lessons learned from organizations that serve as “community anchors” and are leading collaborative efforts to better align objectives, resources and energy among stakeholders. Speakers will share the core competencies of capital access, collaboration and community engagement that guide the most successful approaches to creating strong neighborhoods and providing residents with opportunity.
This event is free; however, registration is required by Friday, Jan. 30, as space is limited. Lunch will be provided.
