Affirmative Fair Housing - Virtual Discussion

Boston, MA

Members Only

How do you comply with Affirmative Fair Housing marketing requirements and still serve special populations?

Join the Housing and Community Development Committee for a virtual discussion about tenant selection preferences and compliance with DHCD requirements. 
Pennrose, LLC and its non profit partner, LGBTQ Senior Housing Inc. are in the midst of rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of the William Barton Rogers School in Hyde Park. They are transforming the school into a 74-unit senior housing property known as The Pryde which will be the first LGBTQ-friendly affordable development in New England. Not only do the developers plan to select residents with a preference for seniors but they also received approval from DHCD to provide a preference for LGBTQ households. A Pennrose representative will join us for a description of the project and a discussion of what “LGBTQ-friendly” means and how it will be implemented during lease-up and thereafter. 
North Shore CDC's Director of Real Estate Ilene Podgur Vogel will also join us to discuss the CDC's recently funded adaptive reuse of the historic St. James School on Federal Street in Salem into 32 affordable apartments for 62+ seniors and the historic St. Mary's School on Hawthorne Boulevard in Salem into 29 mixed income housing units with a preference for housing artists and an artist work space. 
Our third speaker will be an expert on writing and implementing affirmative fair housing and tenant selection plans, from a professional affordable housing management company.
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
