Leaders Disseminate NEF's Expertise at NCSHA's Housing Credit Connect in Atlanta

June 17, 2024

Last week’s NCSHA’s Housing Credit Connect in Atlanta was a huge success and great opportunity to learn more from industry professionals about important topics in the affordable housing industry.

Thank you to all who stopped by our booth at the Marketplace to learn more about NEF and to everyone who attended sessions involving NEF leaders!

Debbie Burkart, a permanent supportive housing pioneer for over 30 years, emphasized how the current housing crisis is affecting older PSH buildings that have been disinvested and ignored, putting residents at risk for a return to homelessness.

Lydia Smith, Vice President, Affordable Housing Equitable Access for Developers (AHEAD) shared the commitments that NEF has made to promoting racial equity through our $147 million Emerging Minority Developers Fund (EMDF).

John Jablonsky, Senior Vice President, Investor Relations, discussed the continued deal pressure facing investors in this economic environment including insurance spikes, higher operating expenses, an influx of new credits that can impact pricing and more.

NEF is grateful to have such well-versed, influential leaders sharing their expertise and guiding our mission through the ever-evolving housing crisis.
