August 24: Housing Update with Lift to Rise

Lift to Rise is revolutionizing the way affordable housing is financed in our community. The cost of housing in the Coachella Valley is high—the median price for a single-family home is $549,000. And incomes are too low—49% of Coachella households earn below $50,000 per year. “We Lift” is the result of more than 70 community partners and their multi-year effort to change the way we develop affordable housing. It’s a groundbreaking solution that pools resources to attract additional capital, allowing local developers to get their community-focused projects built—creating more places that people can call home. This fund is integral to reaching our goal of building 10,000 affordable homes by 2028.

Registration can be made on the chamber’s website and tickets are $55 per person which includes the presentation, networking, lunch, and self introductions.
