HUD Assistant Secretary Galante to Deliver Keynote at NHC and MacArthur Rental Preservation Forum

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Assistant Secretary Carol Galante will deliver the keynote luncheon address at the Partners in Innovation: Financing the Preservation of Rural and Urban Affordable Rental Housing day-long forum in Portland, OR, on May 17th.

The forum is sponsored by NHC and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and is focused on examining the challenges and the opportunities for preserving affordable rental homes in urban and rural communities. With a special emphasis on funding preservation efforts, this forum will bring together more than 200 federal, state, and local officials, industry leaders, and advocates for a discussion on future efforts to preserve and improve affordable rental housing both in the Northwest and across the nation.

Building on the MacArthur Foundation’s $150 million commitment to preserving affordable rental housing, this is one of three forums in 2010 that NHC is spearheading nationwide on rental housing preservation.
