The Affordable Housing Institute is designed to provide attendees with knowledge of the fundamentals of affordable housing development and finance. The Institute is tailored to individuals who are seeking a fuller understanding of the affordable housing industry, including students and young professionals contemplating a career in development, real estate, finance, business, city planning, and public administration programs. It is typically offered for a half day with multiple sessions. Instructors are industry experts who have a deep understanding of the various aspects of affordable housing development, from putting a project together to final landscaping. The Institute is offered in conjunction with the annual Affordable Housing and Community Development Conference each fall, typically the day before. It has a separate registration fee and there are discounts for those who attend both the Institute and the Conference.
