While much of the affordable housing industry focuses on rental housing – homeownership offers opportunities to address inequities in wealth while also providing long-term stable housing to low-income households. This event will bring together policy leaders and practitioners to discuss different affordable homeownership policies and programs – as well as opportunities to support and expand these housing types. The discussion will also go over the history, advantages and challenges of affordable homeownership programs. Panelists will discuss community land trust, limited equity cooperative, sweat equity, and below market rate inclusionary ownership programs in California as well as their nuances and advantages in different situations.
When: Wednesday, February 16 | 12pm – 1pm PT

- Sarah Scruggs (Stewardship & Education Coordinator / Co-Director of Policy, Northern California Land Trust)
- Shannon Way (Executive Director, Homeownership SF)
