What:              The Community Economic Development Assistance Corporation (CEDAC) is sponsoring this webinar to discuss affordable housing preservation in Massachusetts.  The forum will look at the success that Massachusetts has achieved in preserving affordable housing stock since the passage and implementation of the Chapter 40T law in 2009.


Priya Jayachandran, the Chief Executive Officer of National Housing Trust, will be offering keynote remarks, and will look at the opportunities and challenges ahead for affordable housing preservation at the national level.


CEDAC will also be releasing a study assessing the Chapter 40T law. Bill Brauner, CEDAC’s Director of Housing Preservation & Policy and the report’s author, will offer findings from his analysis.  Chapter 40T has had a crucial role in the preservation of almost 10,000 affordable housing units in its first 10 years of operation.
