Preserving Affordable Rural Rental Housing: New Tools and Promising Practices
Thousands of affordable rental properties in rural communities are in danger of being lost to disrepair or market forces in the next decade. This free Connecting Communities® webinar will explore strategies that are being implemented to try and preserve them, with a focus on recently released data and tools that can help community organizations and their partners better understand the current landscape of rural affordable rental housing.
Join us on May 4 to hear presenters from PolicyMap and USDA Rural Housing Service describe the tools and data their organizations have developed or are hosting. You’ll also hear a practitioner’s perspective, as the leader of Southwest Minnesota Housing Partnership discusses how his organization is using those tools and resources to identify at-risk properties and assess preservation strategies.
- Elizabeth Nash, Vice President of Data and Product Development, PolicyMap
- Bryan Hooper, Deputy Administrator for Multifamily Housing, USDA Rural Housing Service
- Rick Goodemann, Chief Executive Officer, Southwest Minnesota Housing Partnership
