Last week, Davis Square Architects’ Iric Rex was in Washington, DC at The NHP Foundation 2019 Symposium & Dinner. The Symposium kicked off with an afternoon of learning, featuring a study on the state of institutional investment in affordable housing presented by John Falco, Principal of Kingsley Associates. The report found a majority of institutional fund managers need more education to take the next step in investing in housing for financially burdened families and seniors. Panelists included Andy McMahon, Vice President of Policy Health & Human Services, United Health Care; Cherie Santos-Wuest, NHPF trustee and Managing Partner of Celadon Venture Partners; Reuben Teague, Vice President, Impact Investments at Prudential Investment; Allison Turner Yager, Partner at Mercer Investment Consulting; and David Wood, Director of the Initiative for Responsible Investment at the Hauser Center for Nonprofit Organizations at the Harvard Kennedy School. The event was a great celebration of NHP’s efforts towards preserving and increasing service-enriched affordable rental housing, a mission which began 30 years ago and is going strong today.
