Open to the public, all welcome
Join NEIU faculty and panelists for an informative conversation about ways to address the need for affordable housing in our community areas and the importance of maintaining income diversity which in turn creates strong, healthy communities. Attendees will be better informed on affordable housing programs and strategies, its need in our neighborhoods, and thus encouraged to be involved in future community discussions on housing projects to help retain local residents.
