Increasing Housing in the Midst of a Crisis: Roles and Responsibilities 

High foreclosure rates due to skyrocketing debt and unemployment have pushed the availability of affordable housing beyond the reach of lower to middle income families.  As a result of this current crisis the government has stepped in and imposed many new regulations, requirements, and rules impervious to criticism.  Non-profit professionals, municipal planners, city employees, or public citizens interested in, or involved with housing preservation, production, or affordable housing projects are encouraged to attend.  Additionally consultants, attorneys, or developers who contribute to housing should consider this seminar.  Topics include the role of federal and state agencies, housing elements, tax credits, role of housing development corporations, steps to success, sustainable and smart growth, as well as transit-oriented development (TOD) to name a few. 

The all-day class will be held Wednesday, September 30 at the Westin Pasadena Hotel.  For more information or to enroll, please contact UCLA Extension Public Policy at (310) 825-7885, or by visiting and referencing course code V3774.
