The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston in partnership with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston, NeighborWorks New Horizons and the Community Economic Development Fund invite you to join community bankers, community development experts, nonprofit lenders, for profit developers and municipal government representatives in discussing business opportunities in community development lending.
Community development lending requires creativity, collaboration and the ability to balance multiple organizational priorities within the context of today’s struggling economy. Join us for a discussion and case study highlighting NeighborWorks New Horizon’s newest mixed use development, Highwood Square. This development started more than a decade ago as a relic of our industrial age and now provides housing for local artisans, needed retail space and represents the rebirth of the area. In addition the day will focus on small business lending strategies and the mitigation of risk, implication of state policy and the role of local government among other topics.
