2020 Homeownership Conference

March 03, 2020 | 8:00 am - 12:30pm

Venue : Manchester Country Club, 180 S River Rd, Bedford, NH




Getting more homes built in our New Hampshire communities is the focus of our 2020 Homeownership Conference. Incremental development via small-scale real estate development projects is a proven way to accomplish this. To accommodate the range of housing our state’s residents need, different solutions to create that housing have to be considered. JOHN ANDERSON, the conference’s keynote speaker, has extensive national experience in delivering complex projects from design to construction.
As a founding member of the Incremental Development Alliance with over 30 years of experience in design and development, Anderson and the Alliance staff also provide training to small developers, with the goal of enabling thousands of small (1-3 story) development projects. They focus on working with communities on infill development. This fall, New Hampshire Housing will offer workshops on incremental development, as well as a boot camp for small developers to be held in early 2021.
Just how many housing units does our state need to satisfy demand and sustain our economic growth – and how can we respond? RUSS THIBEAULT, president of Applied Economic Research, will discuss his housing needs assessment report which will be released this spring.
A discussion on housing production includes:
  • RACHEL EAMES, Owner/Broker, Eames Realty Services
  • JEN HOPKINS, Director, Single Family Housing, NH Community Loan Fund
  • JAMES GALLAGHER, SVP, Commercial Lending, Merrimack County Savings Bank
Additionally, the New Hampshire Housing Top Lenders will be recognized.

The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America: Webinar with Panel Discussion

September 22, 2020 | 4:00 pm - 5:30pm

Venue :Virtual




The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America Webinar with Panel Discussion

Conducted by RICHARD ROTHSTEIN, author of The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America

Presented by the Saint Anselm College Center for Ethics in Business and Governance

----------------------------------------------------

The Color of Law details how federal housing policies in the 1940s and '50s mandated segregation and undermined the ability of black families to own homes and build wealth.

Residential segregation was created by racially explicit and unconstitutional federal, state and local government policy that openly subsidized whites-only suburbanization in which African Americans were prohibited from participating.

In particular, Rothstein describes how the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) refused to provide construction capital to developers for integrated neighborhoods, while guaranteeing loans to developers to build single-family homes with racially exclusive deeds.  Today, neighborhoods and schools remain largely segregated, which Rothstein argues is a result of these policies.

Panelists

·        Moderator: Sarah Mattson Dustin, Executive Director of NH Legal Assistance

·        Dr. Richard Rothstein, Author

·        NH State Representative Charlotte DiLorenzo

·        Dr. Marie Ramas, M.D. and Medical Director of Gatehouse Treatment Center

·        Ryan Terrell, businessman and candidate for the NH House of Representatives

Greater Nashua Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Conference

September 30, 2020 | 8:00 am - 12:00pm

Venue :Virtual




All children are at risk for lead poisoning, and every child should be tested at 1 and 2 years of age. Children aged 3 to 6 who have not previously been tested should also have the test.  The Leading Education and Awareness on Lead (L.E.A.D.) in Greater Nashua initiative is working to increase blood lead level testing for children under 6 years of age in the Greater Nashua Public Health Region (GNPHR) through educational opportunities and educational materials for health care providers, child care providers, and the general public. The goal of this virtual conference is to educate and engage partners, stakeholders, and community members on the impact of childhood lead poisoning, the importance of childhood blood lead testing, and the next steps we can take as a community to keep our children safe and healthy. We hope this conference will empower the Greater Nashua Region to increase engagement in initiatives and collaborations aimed at preventing childhood lead poisoning in our community. Following this conference, participants will be able to:

  1. Provide an overview of childhood lead poisoning and how it impacts children in our community;
  2. Highlight current initiatives related to childhood lead poisoning prevention in the GNPHR; and
  3. Share lead poisoning prevention educational opportunities with partners and community members.
If your organization is interested in having an exhibitor table at this event, please contact Nicole Viau. For further information, visit their website.

From the Outskirts to Downtown: Taxes, Land Use & Value in 15 New Hampshire Communities

October 15, 2020 | 10:00 am - 11:30am

Venue :Virtual




In New Hampshire, property taxes are the key revenue source for local governments. Tax rates, land use and land value from one end of town to the other often vary in surprising ways.

To better understand the economic and policy implications of these three property tax elements, New Hampshire Housing contracted with Joe Minicozzi of Urban3 to analyze what types of development create the greatest tax return in 15 communities around the state.
In a highly engaging webinar on Thursday, October 15 at 10 AM, Minicozzi will launch his first presentation and provide an overview of his analysis of property tax revenues in Berlin, Claremont, Concord, Dover, Exeter, Hanover, Hudson, Keene, Laconia, Lebanon, Nashua, Pelham, Peterborough, Portsmouth and Rochester. (In 2018, the Orbit Group hired Urban3 to conduct an analysis of Manchester.) Later in October and into November, Minicozzi will present several community-focused webinars.
By using data to create 3D visualizations, Urban 3's analysis reveals the potential for improving the fiscal health of these 15 communities. The visuals show what types of development create the greatest tax return for communities, and create a clear and data-driven understanding of the economics of place. With these 3D depictions of its data, a community has a tool to make public policy adjustments, with the goal of creating long-term financial resiliency.
Joseph Minicozzi, AICP is the principal of Urban3, which looks at how land is used and affects tax productivity. He is an urban planner who utilizes new ways to think about and visualize land use, urban design, and economics.
See links below for additional information on Minicozzi's analysis of local tax revenues, land use and value in 15 New Hampshire communities. If you have questions for Joe Minicozzi / Urban3, please email those to: info@nhhfa.org Schedule and links to register for community-focused webinars by Joe Minicozzi will be posted below.
