2023 NHP Foundation Symposium

The 7th Annual NHPF Symposium was amazing! This year’s Symposium focused on the future of affordable housing. Donahue, recognized as a “YIMBY with a conscience”, was honored with the Affordable Housing Trailblazer Award for his efforts in mitigating the impacts of gentrification and narrowing the racial wealth gap.

During Donahue’s presentation, he brought attention to the critical matter of affordable housing, underscoring, “We’re in a seminal moment in our nation, a fundamental premise of the American dream is under attack. It used to be: you get a job, you buy a house, you raise a family and retire on the equity you’ve built. Today, homeownership is out of reach and the price of shelter is unforgivingly high.”
He proposed practical solutions, such as the expansion of downpayment assistance programs and the implementation of policy changes to tackle urban housing constraints.

This event was held in Washington, DC, and provided a platform for industry leaders to discuss crucial housing issues and emphasize the importance of collaborative efforts in ensuring affordable housing for all.
