Description:

Awakened by COVID and the George Floyd murder in Minneapolis, a renewed focus and funding support is attempting to accelerate a range of long-term racial and rural disparities with an array of priorities in housing, community wealth building and small business survival and incubation. How do we avoid silo thinking and funding to foster collaboration and more integrated impact in neighborhoods?  Join us in a discussion with long-time Oregon housing leader NOAH (Network for Oregon Affordable Housing), the leading regional CDFI, Craft3, and the Community Investment Trust (CIT) of Mercy Corps. Panel will be moderated by Steven White, Attorney with Orrick, Herrington and Sutcliffe, LLP.
