Join us for a panel discussion including lenders, developers and representatives from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Housing, all currently working on rental housing projects in San Francisco. Co-hosted by the San Francisco Housing Action Coalition.
