Power After the Pandemic: Community Finance
On October 15, join the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development and Urban Design Forum in discussion with Kerry McLean (WHEDco), James Sanders (New York State Senate), and Paulina Gonzalez-Brito (California Reinvestment Coalition) on the future of community finance and community development after COVID-19.
For our second Power After the Pandemic dialogue, we welcome our experts to discuss: How can we shape community investment programs to meet the needs of today’s crisis? How can we leverage existing tools - and create new tools and policies - to hold banks accountable and achieve fair and equitable lending?
Power After the Pandemic is jointly led by the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development and Urban Design Forum. Our program will build on the foundations of the ANHD’s 10th Annual Community Development Conference and UDF’s City Life After Coronavirus series.
Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to build community power to win affordable housing and thriving, equitable neighborhoods for all New Yorkers. Our members include more than 80 neighborhood-based affordable housing and equitable economic development organizations across New York City, and we use capacity-building, organizing, and policy advocacy to advance our mission.
Urban Design Forum mobilizes civic leaders to confront the defining issues facing New York City’s built environment. We are an independent membership organization that empowers professionals of diverse backgrounds, industries and perspectives to shape a better future for all New Yorkers. We investigate complex challenges in the built environment, study alternative approaches from cities around the world, and advance progressive strategies to build a more dynamic and democratic city.
