Free Public Lecture: How National Affordable Housing Changes, Demands and Funding Challenges Will Affect Your Community!

David A. Smith, Founder of RECAP Real Estate Advisors, coming to San Luis Obispo Public Library March 13

San Luis Obispo, March 6, 2015 – National speaker David A. Smith, founder and equity partner of RECAP Real Estate Advisors, will discuss current and future national changes that will affect available funding for providing affordable housing on the Central Coast and elsewhere during a free, March 13 lecture sponsored by Peoples’ Self-Help Housing.

The public is invited to this inspiring lecture 2-3 p.m. Friday, March 13, at the San Luis Obispo Public Library, Community Room, 995 Palm St. in San Luis Obispo. Peoples’ Self-Help Housing is sponsoring this highly sought after speaker to discuss affordable housing industry threats, challenges and opportunities.

Smith will discuss current and future changes on the national affordable housing industry level that will affect access to funding sources and the ability to provide affordable housing. Find out how those changes affect local jurisdictions, trends in CDBG & HOME funding, USDA & GSE’s administration, rural designations, tax credit investment regulations, tax reform, immigration, and other implications.

Smith’s extensive experience and connection to NeighborWorks America make him a national expert on this topic and the intricacies related to the future of affordable housing development and delivery of low-income population support services. He has led RECAP into new market segments, new strategic relationships, and developed new business products and services. For nearly four decades he has successfully pioneered transactions, service lines, business models, programs, and government policy innovations that have begun as opportunities, turned into replicable models, and become national movements of practice. A 1975 Harvard graduate, he was a partner at Boston Financial Group through 1989, and also founded and runs the global non-profit Affordable Housing Institute.

Plenty of parking is available at the nearby public parking structure.
