Housing Solutions Network,
Please see attached the 2014 meeting schedule for the Housing Solutions Network. Meetings this year will center on education and discussion with funders and other community partners, with a focus on topics that address action strategies identified by the Network. At the next meeting, scheduled for March 11, Marjorie Green from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis will be attending to discuss affordable housing funding programs from the FHLBI.
Also, NorthSky will be hosting an event on collective impact. The Housing Solutions Network has discussed collaborative impact in the past, and this event will be a great opportunity to learn more about this innovative, solution-oriented approach to meeting community needs and goals. The free event features national collective impact expert David Phillips and will be held on February 20 at the NMC Hagerty Center in Traverse City.
