Cornerstone Partnership and the National Community Land Trust Network invite you to learn about strategies for local advocacy at the second Policy Action Committee meeting of 2015. Advocating for permanently affordable housing at the local level can be complex. Practitioners must decide which policy or program best suits their community’s needs, determine whether the local political climate will allow it, and strategically engage an array of stakeholders for support.
Attendees will learn about some of the local policy options available to them, and previous recipients of the Network and Cornerstone Partnership’s Catalyzing Impact grants will share their experiences and lessons learned from advocating for inclusionary zoning, housing trust funds, and equitable transit-oriented development.
