Our panel of experts have touched on:
BDP aims to further reduce barriers for new BIPOC developers and contractors in the affordable housing development industry by providing valuable information to reduce the barriers of entry into the affordable housing industry. New BIPOC developers and contractors will gain insight from seminars that prepare them for new projects. In addition, at the end of the seminars, policy recommendations are drafted and sent to city officials in hopes of improving the current regulatory landscape and promote the mayor’s and governor’s goal to increase new developers and contractors’ participation throughout the East Coast.
