Join Capital Impact Partners for a conversation about ways to increase opportunities for minority real estate developers in Washington, D.C. to participate in the region’s booming development landscape. The convening will focus on what resources are necessary to help minority developers participate in developing and preserving affordable housing so that residents – particularly those in Wards 4 through 8 – have access to high-quality housing.
Engaging minority developers to actively participate in Washington, D.C.’s continued growth provides real opportunity to ensure that that growth is equitable and inclusive for communities of color. However, minority developers are underrepresented in the broader real estate development industry. Factors include a lack of access to networks and information, limited development experience, and less personal wealth as compared to non-minority counterparts.
Goals of this convening include:
Creating a shared understanding of the challenges and opportunities for developers of color operating in the District;
Navigating District housing priorities and regulatory environment for developing and preserving housing affordable to those with low incomes, and
Clarifying financing capital, and other, needs to ensure the development and preservation of affordable housing.
Convening participants include: local for-profit and not-for-profit residential real estate developers, policymakers, and financial institutions.
