Event

Affordable Housing for Seniors: Challenges and Opportunities for Service-Enriched Properties in the Second District

October 26, 2022

On Wednesday, October 26, 2022, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York will host an in-person event centered on the need for affordable housing that includes services for low- and moderate-income older adults in the Second District. The event will bring together policymakers, funders, developers, and senior housing advocates to detail barriers to the financing and development of affordable service-enriched senior housing and describe successful models for overcoming those barriers. Participants will also weigh the potential for partnerships between public, private, and nonprofit organizations to finance and develop such projects.
