ANHD’s Community Development Conference annually convenes hundreds of affordable housing and economic justice practitioners to engage in timely conversations on how we make New York City more affordable and equitable and #BuildCommunityPower.

This year, ANHD will host a 3-day LIVE virtual conference Tuesday, October 5th, Wednesday, October 6th, and Thursday, October 7th, designed to help strengthen our work re-building New York City post-COVID, especially low-income and Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) communities that have been left out of the decision-making process for decades.

ANHD’s 2021 conference theme is Fight Forward: People, Progress, Policies. We will rely on this theme as a lens to guide critical, timely conversations on affordable housing, small business recovery, land use justice, and responsible banking.

Add to Calendar

Speakers and attendees will include our not-for-profit affordable housing and community development corporation members, policy experts, financial institution representatives, key government agency representatives, elected officials, and philanthropic organizations. We hope you will join us for these critical conversations that will help us to move forward for the year ahead!
