2018 EVENT SERIES
THE FUTURE OF IMPACT INVESTING IS LOCAL
City First Foundation is proud to present the first of three distinct events featuring front-line experts and changemakers across our community sharing their unique insights and lessons learned as we collectively pave the way to social and economic equity. Learn how mission driven institutions and individuals are leveraging capital to accelerate community and economic development by growing small businesses and nonprofits. All of which create jobs, support social mobility and reduce disparities for individuals and families. Explore the challenges and opportunities in achieving equity through local impact investing with the public, private, nonprofit and philanthropic communities.
THE FUTURE OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING INVESTING
The 2018 Affordable Housing Impact Forum offers a rare workshop style opportunity to learn from and network with leaders of sustainable, responsible community development. Hear technical information from affordable housing experts in nonprofit development, government, and financiers who are driving new approaches, policy development, and funding that impacts housing availability and affordability, especially East of the River.
City First specializes in working with small emerging developers, as well as financing projects with established developers. We have a strong track record of successful partnerships with both local and federal government agencies to leverage opportunities and access to the capital needed to finance development in low-to-moderate income neighborhoods. You’ll also learn more about Opportunity Zones, “the next big thing in community development,” aimed at driving long-term private capital into distressed communities.
THE FUTURE OF URBAN RESILIENCE
Persistent socio-economic inequity in the nation’s capital is placing our most vulnerable residents under chronic stress. DC is also at risk of acute environmental shocks, such as flooding and infrastructure failures.
Public, private, nonprofit and philanthropic sectors need to accelerate collaborative and holistic solutions toward a new resilient system that ensures a more inclusive and responsible future.
How can we strengthen the well-being of all DC residents through intentional socio-economic strategies, channeled resources and protective policies?
