To showcase last month's successful Southeast Regional Convening of the RAD Collaborative, the Greensboro Housing Authority (GHA), who hosted the event, published event highlights and photos on the GHA website.
This three-day event offered an opportunity for an in-depth look into repositioning of housing, discussions on Section 18, voluntary conversion, and new RAD provisions. The meeting featured engaging discussions with HUD, including the Director of the Office of Recapitalization Tom Davis and the Director of Affordable Housing Transaction Division Greg Byrne. Additionally, panels featured professionals from three state housing finance agencies, industry partners, and a wide range of RAD practitioners, including housing authorities. Although the convening was for all PHAs, there was a special emphasis on smaller agencies—many of whom had questions about how to make repositioning work at their agency. The convening also provided networking opportunities and the chance to ask questions about the realities of conversion. Over 200 attendees from across the region and country attended this informative meeting.
