Across the country, resident-led institutions and their allies continue to build organizing strategies that address housing, displacement, and gentrification at the local, regional, and state level. Strategies and solutions to gentrification and displacement like rent control measures, passing local ballot initiatives for renter protections, developing community land trusts, and financing affordable housing has had some success, but the demographics of many communities are still rapidly changing. 

At the center of these shifts, philanthropy continues to play a critical role investing in expanding the power of low-income communities to build local decision-making. How will federal level changes exacerbate challenges at the city-level? How are community groups connecting to other local challenges? What are some of the emerging 2017 strategies that teams are working on to address the housing crises? 

Join this call, hosted by the Neighborhood Funders Group, to hear from funders and advocates, and to share your questions and ideas.
