ULI MEMBERS-ONLY WEBINAR: Healthy Housing for All — Lessons from Affordable Housing for the Broader Marketplace
This is a complimentary, ULI members-only webinar. It is open to nonmembers for $100, or available for free by becoming a member. You must register in order to receive a recording of this webinar.
Over the past several years, in response to growing health concerns that disproportionately impact the most under-served populations, the affordable housing industry has pioneered innovative solutions to support resident health through housing design, development, and operations.
A new report from the ULI Building Health Places Initiative, Healthy Housing for All: How Affordable Housing Can Lead the Way explores the affordable housing industry’s achievements in creating healthier housing environments and translates these into lessons for the broader housing marketplace.
The innovations in healthy affordable housing present an opportunity to replicate healthy housing successes, as well as to respond to market demand across the residential development industry. In this one-hour webinar, we will further explore the research in this report, examining features, programs, processes, policies, and opportunities to maximize project success and improve public health outcomes by providing healthy housing for all.
This webinar is a part of the 2018 series of webinars presented by the ULI Responsible Property Investment Council. The expert panel of speakers for this webinar represent RPIC and the ULI Affordable and Workforce Housing Council.
