Join CohnReznick this Fall in Las Vegas as we bring together the leading developers (not-for-profit and for-profit), investors, and agencies/housing authorities active in providing affordable housing throughout the country. We will be showcasing and educating attendees on successful projects that expand beyond the traditional housing model through tax credit financing. Innovative connections, such as with healthcare, can help strengthen and uplift housing efforts.

Keynote: Dr. Josh Bamberger 

Drawing from findings from an extensive three-year study and his insight in a career spent working with those afflicted with homelessness, Dr. Bamberger’s intriguing keynote will showcase examples from around the country where healthcare and housing sectors have worked collaboratively. As stable housing is generally acknowledged to be a critical element in healthier lives – at a time when affordable housing is in dire need – Dr. Bamberger’s discussion highlight partnerships that increase the supply of supportive housing and improve community health. Commissioned by Mercy Housing and LIIF, prepared with support from The California Endowment and the Kresge Foundation, “Innovative Models in Health and Housing” offers solutions to bring much-needed investment into affordable housing from new partners, increasing supply and lowering health costs.
