Investing in Affordable Housing

Private Market Solutions to the Triangle’s Affordable Housing Shortage

North Carolina’s Research Triangle is booming, driving strong job creation and population growth. Yet the region’s affordable housing stock is shrinking. This forward-looking symposium focuses on the private market production and preservation of affordable housing to ensure workers can live and invest in the communities where they work. What are the impediments to investing in the area’s affordable housing stock? Are there emerging models that might increase the supply?


The symposium will take place on Friday, November 22. Join us for keynote presentations and breakout sessions to learn more about investing in affordable housing.
