As part of our membership with the United Philanthropy Forum, The Council of New Jersey Grantmakers invites members to join this affordable housing webinar brought to you by Funders Together to End Homelessness.

Join this webinar to learn about Opportunity Starts at Home, a long-term, multi-sector campaign to meet the rental housing needs of the nation’s low-income population. Mike Koprowski and Chantelle Wilkinson from the National Low Income Housing Coalition will share how they’ve coalesced several sectors around a shared theory of action and how racial equity and prevention are a part of the work to meet affordable housing need by building cross-sector partnerships. Jeanne Fekade-Sellassie from Funders for Housing and Opportunity (FHO) and Susan Thomas from the Melville Charitable Trust will share how funders are supporting this work through FHO and other ways philanthropy can engage in this cross-sector work. 

This webinar is only open to members of Funders Together, private funders, United Ways, and philanthropy-serving organizations. 

Cost: Free for CNJG Members and Nonmember Grantmakers.
