Resilience and Innovation in Housing

 

Join us on Friday,  September 24th at 10:00 AM for two engaging panel discussions:


Panel One:
Impactful Investing in Affordable Housing – Emerging Sources of Capital

It is critical to invest in historically disenfranchised and underserved communities, as well as ensuring equal access to housing opportunities in “high opportunity” areas for individuals and families that have historically been blocked and red-lined out of opportunity. Hear from innovative leaders and thinkers in this space about how this type of investment can work in our region.

Panelist 1: Michael Skrebutenas, Senior Vice President for Housing, LISC National Housing

Panelist 2: Moses Gates, Vice President for Housing, Regional Plan Association

Panelist 3: David Erickson, Senior Vice President, Federal Reserve Bank of New York

Moderated By: Sol Marie Alfonso Jones, Senior Program Officer, Long Island Community Foundation


Panel Two:
Resilience Among Millennials

The millennial generation on Long Island is often squeezed out of the housing market for a variety of factors, which have been compounded by the pandemic and student loan debt. Long Island communities are more diverse than ever, and with that comes a greater responsibility to ensure the creation of inclusive, equitable communities. Hear from our panelists about the challenges and experiences they face and what they’d like to see done to stay here. Hear from experts on what needs to be done to meet that need – as a call to action for all community members.

Panelist 1: Daniel Lloyd, Founder & President, Minority Millennials

Panelist 2: Coralie Saint-Louis, nextLI Outreach & Engagement Manager, Newsday

Panelist 3: Mitch Pally, CEO, Long Island Builders Institute
