How new ideas are breaking down financial barriers to home ownership and building creative housing

We all know that we’re in a housing crisis here in Bend and that it impacts the local workforce. This is nothing new. What is new are the strides that some private sector and nonprofit organizations are making in breaking down the financial barriers of home ownership. They’re doing this through creative and innovative solutions that are already on the market or soon to be available. Learn more about these new solutions to help ease the financial crunch of the housing crisis and creative development plans for Bend. This won’t be just more talk about a problem that is already identified… it’ll be powerful insights into what is being done about it.

We need more workforce housing – now. Bend and Central Oregon businesses are having difficulty filling positions due to the lack of housing, and we are seeing employees travel farther away in order to find affordable places to live. We know creating more inventory is the solution, but how do you make it pencil out?

Come to the May 14 What’s Brewing and find out how new, real-time solutions are breaking down the financial barriers of home ownership and construction.

This session will be co-moderated by Katy Brooks, Bend Chamber CEO, and Carolyn Eagan, City of Bend Economic Development Director.

Doors open for networking at 5 p.m.
Forum starts at 5:30 p.m.
Registration includes a tasty beverage and appetizers! – Registration is $40 at the door
