Center for Community Progress Workshop
January 24, 2013
The national Center for Community Progress will conduct a workshop on mitigating the effects of foreclosure for AHAND and G-STAND next Thursday, on January 24th. The Center for Community Progress is the nation’s preeminent organization addressing issues of vacant properties – both the prevention of abandonment and adaptive reuse. With staff in Flint Michigan, Washington D.C., and New Orleans who provide advocacy, technical assistance and organizational development services to governments and advocates throughout the nation, Community Progress helps neighborhoods, cities, counties and states forge and implement effective strategies to prevent and reuse vacant properties. Frank Alexander, law professor at Emory University, was one of the founding members.
This workshop is open to anyone concerned about mitigating the devastating effects of foreclosures, but is especially geared toward nonprofit housing developers (including CDCs) and governmental housing and community development agencies. We think this workshop provides a unique opportunity for low-cost, local training usually only available nationally.
This workshop is also one of three scheduled for the first quarter of this year. Anyone interested can register online at www.ahand.org for one seminar or all three. By registering for all three now, people can save: $40 for individual workshop registration or $75 for all three.
