Richmond Office, Richmond, Va.



The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, the Virginia Local Initiative Support Corporation (LISC) and the Partnership for Housing Affordability will host a dynamic discussion with regional leaders and national experts about addressing vacant property issues in Richmond-area neighborhoods. The forum will focus on existing tools and strategies, as well as explore new policy alternatives that address concentrations of vacant properties in communities.

Rachel Flynn, director of community development for the City of Richmond and Racquel Reddie, community development manager for the National Community Stabilization Trust, will share their experiences in facilitating the reuse of abandoned, foreclosed and bank-owned properties in neighborhoods.



Nonprofit staff, local government agencies, Public Housing Authorities, and real estate professionals are all invited to attend.
