Annual Conference

ANHD began hosting our Annual Community Development Conference over a decade ago, in 2011, recognizing the need for a space where key players in the community development field could come together to discuss and listen to timely affordable housing and economic development matters in New York City.


The ANHD conference has proven highly successful—annually engaging 400+ local non-profit and Community Development Corporation members, mission-driven developers, government officials, bank and financial institution representatives, and other allies in the field to discuss timely housing, economic, and social justice topics. Each conference event is designed to challenge participants to think about their work in new ways, and to meet new colleagues.


For more information on our current and past conference events – including agendas, speakers, and workshops, please check out the tile cards below.

ANHD is celebrating our 50th anniversary with two in-person community conversations in May and June/July, leading up to our Fifty Forward Fête in October.

Join ANHD for the 12th annual Community Development Conference in October. Attend In-Community events citywide, leading to the Fight Forward Finale on October 26th.

A four-part series event across the boroughs September and October 2022
