Housing Trust Conference

Saturday, May 6, 2017

Courtyard Marriott Marlborough

75 Felton Street

Marlborough, MA 01752

There are only two weeks left to join the Massachusetts Housing Partnership (MHP), Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) and MetroWest Regional Collaborative (MWRC) for a half-day training geared towards trustees of existing Affordable Housing Trusts and staff that supports those trusts.

The training will be held on Saturday, May 6 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 the Courtyard Marriott in Marlborough. Registration begins at 8 a.m.


The goal of this training is to bring together trustees and trust support staff from across the state to:

  • Provide an overview of trust work across the state
  • Discuss best practices and learn from other communities
  • Review eligible trust activities and legal considerations
  • Work through potential development pitfalls with a case study

MHP staff will also walk attendees through a new online resource for communities interested in preserving or producing affordable housing.

Learn about housing development

Local small-scale housing developer, Kevin Maguire of Oxbow Partners, will take us through the affordable housing development process. Examples of housing developments will be used to show ways that trusts can support housing creation. Kevin will also touch on the decisions that a local community may make that unknowingly negatively impact affordable housing development.

Registration details

Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. Cost to attend is $30.
