People Powered Communities: How Individuals & Businesses Can Invest in Housing Affordability

May 14 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Microsoft’s announcement this year of a $500M fund for workforce housing, and Bellwether Housing’s upcoming Building Opportunity Campaign are two innovative and exciting examples of businesses and individuals chipping in to help solve the housing affordability crisis.

Come hear from Microsoft’s Amy Liu about how Microsoft came to make such a large investment and how it will be deployed, and from Bellwether Housing’s Amy Besunder about how their Building Opportunity Campaign will break new ground in enabling everyday people to invest in affordable housing in their own communities. Ethan Goodman of Tech 4 Housing will moderate the discussion.
