    Track 2: Financing Options, Real Estate, & Economic Development
    Communities of all sizes across the country are struggling to meet the urgent need for affordable housing. Brownfield sites are often well-positioned for affordable housing due to their proximity to transit and other services, but site cleanup costs coupled with the public subsidies needed for affordable units make achieving this incredibly challenging. This session will highlight innovative strategies to repurpose brownfield sites for affordable housing from financing and capital, to leveraging other public resources. Government and developer perspectives will set the stage. Then we want to hear from you. What’s working in your communities? Is it replicable? How can we organize to move the needle on this issue going forward? Come prepared to share your success stories and best practices and to learn and network with your peers from around the country.
