Affordable Housing Finance will host two virtual events in addition to the annual AHF Live conference in Chicago this year.

First up is the virtual AHF April Forum, which will offer an early look at the post-election environment for affordable housing. Carol Galante, faculty director of the Terner Center for Housing Innovation at the University of California at Berkeley and former Federal Housing Administration commissioner, will provide a candid state-of-the industry outlook.

Other sessions on April 13 and 14 will bring together top developers and executives to share their insights on timely topics, including health and housing, compliance pitfalls, getting deals done in today’s environment, and building resilient affordable housing.

The AHF August Forum will focus on workforce housing, with panels presenting the latest innovative housing models, sharing strategies for addressing the “missing middle,” and detailing the preservation of critical naturally occurring affordable housing properties. The virtual event will be held Aug. 10 and 11.

AHF then plans to bring everyone together for the annual AHF Live: The Affordable Housing Developers Summit, Nov. 15 to 17, in Chicago. The in-person event will dig into the latest financing and development strategies. Signature sessions will examine the latest in the low-income housing tax credit, debt, and bond markets and break down the news from Capitol Hill.

In addition, there will be two pre-conference workshops—Tax Credit and Tax-Exempt Bond Boot Camp and Preparing for Year 15 and Aging Properties. We’ll also bring back the popular Women in Affordable Housing Luncheon and the Annual Awards Ceremony to honor AHF’s Hall of Fame inductees, Young Leaders, and Readers’ Choice Awards winners. There will be plenty of other educational and networking opportunities with the industry’s top developers and executives.

An early-bird rate of $849 ends April 3. A special nonprofit rate is available at $799. Registration to AHF Live will include access to the April and August virtual forums. For details, visit

Attendance is reserved for those who are primarily owners and developers of affordable housing, state and local housing finance agency representatives, and members of nonprofit organizations.
