    According to the National Low Income Housing Coalition, there is currently a shortage of more than 7 million affordable homes for our nation's 11 million extremely low-income families. There is no state or county in the U.S. today where a renter working full-time at minimum wage can afford a two-bedroom apartment. Every state and every community is impacted by this problem and each year, the housing shortage gets worse. Families often must choose between paying rent or paying for groceries.

    While the need for affordable housing is widely understood and accepted, there is often strong opposition to building affordable housing within communities. Sometimes it is a "Not In My Back Yard" (NIMBY) stakeholder issue, other times the underlying issue goes deeper into negative perceptions and stereotypes about those who live in affordable housing. These competing concerns and interests lead inevitably to conflict within communities.

    In this webinar, the panelists will discuss dispute resolution strategies and best practices to help bring communities together and collaborate across differences to find a path forward.
