Mobilizing Private Investment in Affordable Housing: Lessons from the United States

April 16, 2013 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Sponsored by TD Bank Group

 

 

 

 

The shortage of affordable housing is a major problem in Toronto. But little new affordable supply is being built, social housing units require major capital repairs, and provincial and federal finances are tight. In the United States, the private sector plays a greater role in building and rehabilitating affordable housing through tax credits and innovative financing and partnership models. Are there lessons for Ontario? This event featured Doris Koo of Enterprise Community Partners, a leading U.S. provider of the development capital and expertise it takes to create decent, affordable homes and thriving communities.

 

SPEAKER

Doris Koo, senior advisor and former president and CEO, Enterprise Community Partners, Inc.

Moderator: Derek Ballantyne, CEO of Community Forward Fund and Principal at DKGI Inc.
