The Fundamentals of Affordable Housing Institute
Affordable housing – its policies, programs and players – do not need to be a mystery. The San Diego Housing Federation (SDHF) is San Diego County’s affordable housing resource, offering education on affordable housing - what it is, why we need it and how it can impact the work you are doing. On October 28, SDHF will offer the region’s only intensive and dedicated training on what affordable housing is. The workshop covers how affordable housing is built, who builds it, how it is financed, who it benefits, and how it connects to other regional priorities. Sessions are led by the top experts and leaders in the field.
