Using surplus properties for affordable housing recorded webinar

Contact: Heidi Olmstead

Cities and other local governments now have new authorities to dispose of surplus property at less than market value for affordable housing purposes. Is your jurisdiction planning to navigate this complex, multi-step process? Have you considered the existing tools? Find out how you can use surplus properties in your community for affordable housing.

  • Learn about the new law and what it means  for cities and other local governments.
  • Explore case studies of local governments that have leveraged similar laws or are planning to leverage this one.
  • Hear about opportunities from the perspective of housing advocates.

This recorded webinar is for city/other local government officials and staff as well as advocates.
