Initiative for a Competitive Inner City Webinar Discussed Ways to Use Shared Equity to Promote Economic Development

Last Wednesday, the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City hosted a Webinar entitled, "Discovering Opportunity: Using the Foreclosure Crisis to Address Challenges in Inner City Economic Development," which focused on shared equity. The event was the third in a series of Webinars focusing on opportunities that can be developed out of the foreclosure crisis.

During the event, panelists George McCarthy, program officer, Asset Building and Economic Development, Ford Foundation; Rick Jacobus, partner, Burlington Associates in Community Development; and Jim Gray, vice president, NCB Capital Impact, shared how civic and business leaders might use shared equity and other affordable housing strategies leverage the foreclosure crisis to address other critical issues in inner city economic development.
