The Building Capacity Workshop series is designed to provide many educational and networking opportunities for Minority- and Women-owned Business Enterprises (M/WBEs) and nonprofit organizations. By strengthening and expanding the field of affordable housing developers, HPD hopes to find many new partners with whom we can work to achieve the ambitious goals of the Housing New York plan, while strengthening our local businesses and neighborhoods in the process.
Since 2014, over 60 M/WBE firms and nonprofit organizations have gained valuable insights into and connections with the affordable housing industry. Workshops are taught by pairs of HPD staff and a range of affordable housing professionals who generously donate their time.
Thanks to our partners from the Department of Small Business Services (SBS), Holland & Knight, NYSAFAH, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Paul Weiss, Redstone Equity Partners, Artimus, Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), and Enterprise Community Partners. Additional presenters from Arker Companies, Citi Community Capital, CPC, HDC, Hudson Housing, KOW Consultants, Monadnock Construction, National Equity Fund, RHR Funding, Silverstone, SKA Marin, SHNNY, and Wavecrest generously shared their time and expertise.
