Webinar – Making the Case for Affordable Homeownership through Outreach & Education

May 24, 2011 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Description

The recent housing crisis has sent many families into foreclosure and a disproportionate number of those families have been low-income.  As a result, some communities are reevaluating whether or not homeownership still plays a critical role in community development despite its potential for homeowner wealth building and, if structured with long-term affordability restrictions, the potential for preserving the public investment.

Practitioners must work harder than ever to make sure that community leaders and homebuyers understand how long-term affordable homeownership programs work and what the tradeoffs are.  Community outreach, homebuyer training and ongoing homeowner education are all important components to homeownership programs that preserve long-term affordability.

Join our webinar on May 24 to hear from three field experts and learn how programs can educate communities and homebuyers and implement effective strategies for:

  • Community Outreach and Messaging
  • Classroom Training of Potential Homebuyers of Homes with Long-term Affordability Restrictions
  • Post-purchase Homebuyer Education

Speakers

  • Christi Baker, Principal, Chrysalis Consulting Group, San Francisco, CA
  • Jacqueline Cooper, Principal, Financial Education Associates, Boston, MA
  • Karen Hoskins, Senior Homeownership Specialist, NeighborWorks America
