2022 Affordable Housing Summit

Housing plays a critical role in the health and equity of neighborhoods and in their resiliency to the effects of climate change. Building affordable housing right now means accounting for these simultaneous crises with each project. It is critical to promote physical and mental health, equity, and to reduce the carbon impacts in buildings, all while balancing the need to rapidly house people more affordably. ILFI’s annual affordable housing summit will bring together speakers and panelists discussing how developers, architects, and builders in this sector are striving for net-positive outcomes in health, equity, and climate. The summit will include interactive sessions and break down actionable steps that attendees can integrate into their work for each of these areas.
