Workforce Housing, the trend to encourage local municipal workers (e.g. police, teachers, firefighters etc.) and other middle income workers and families to own and rent their own homes in their local municipalities, is a growing market phenomenom.

Developers can earn considerable socially-conscience profits in today’s volatile real estate markets by investing in this area. Workforce Housing can be a key strategy in a municipality’s toolbox, enabling the retention of valuable employees, the maintenance of affordable housing and the revitalization of specific municipal areas.

To address the real-time educational and networking needs of developers and local municipalities, IMN is pleased to announce its inaugural Symposium on Workforce Housing. This event will be held on September 18-19 in Chicago.

Among the many issues in Chicago:

-"Workforce Housing 101" - An Introductory Primer On Defining Workforce Housing
-Drafting Workforce Housing Legislation
-Educating Developers & Politicians
-Evaluating Local Markets for Workforce Housing Opportunities
-The First Time: Putting the Whole Deal Together
-Workforce Housing Economic Feasibility Studies
-Transforming Distressed Opportunities to Workforce Housing

This event is extremely timely and is particularly well-suited to real estate investors, not-for profit and government employees.

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago, September 24-25.
