Putting Faith In Housing: A Panel on Innovative Solutions to NYC’s Affordable Housing Shortage

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

8:30am –10:00 am

A panel discussion tackling the burgeoning area of faith-based affordable housing in New York City, sponsored by Friedman LLP, a leading accounting and advisory firm with professionals dedicated to serving the affordable housing community; Goldstein Hall PLLC, a full-service law firm with a concentration in affordable housing and community development; Chase Bank, one of the largest affordable housing lenders in the community; and The NHP Foundation, a leading builder of quality affordable housing.


Some of the city’s largest owners of available land on which to build are churches and synagogues. But what are the “best practices” for creating successful and equitable partnerships with developers, builders and funders that will help foster the development and construction of affordable housing that is “more than a roof?”
