May 8, 2024 – CAL-ALHFA’s Single Family Symposium.
The Symposium recognizes the importance of homeownership in building wealth and stability in low-income and minority communities and presents a program that offers new ideas for local agencies in the financing, construction, and community building for single family housing. The Golden State Finance Authority (GSFA) hosts this event at its Sacramento headquarters.
May 9, 2024 – CAL-ALHFA’s Multifamily Conference.
The Conference is a wide-ranging discussion covering the most important new developments in multifamily housing. While these events are stand-alone meetings, we encourage staff to attend both days. The Multifamily Conference will also be hosted by the GSFA at their Sacramento Office.
2024 is going to be a landmark year for affordable housing, with major bond issues on the March and November ballots and the Assembly Constitutional Amendment lowering the voter threshold on the November ballot. These are going to be expensive and time-consuming efforts, and CAL-ALHFA is committed to doing its part – again – to get more affordable housing built in California. We urge you – again – to do your part in this effort by joining CAL-ALHFA today.
