9:00AM - 12:00PMOptional Morning Visit to Oakland - For those already in town, we will be leading a visit to Oakland, across the Bay Bridge from San Francisco. Over the last several years, Oakland has become a key focus for community development, with several HPN members active in the city. The focus of the tour, part of which will be on foot, will be not just on affordable housing, but also on the important role of art and culture in the revival of the city, non-housing facilities, and the impact of urban gentrification.

The Policy Environment
The opening plenary will delve into the complex policy environment across IHP. The first part will focus on the policy and economic environment in the Bay Area and California. If California, with its 40 million people, were an independent country, it would be the 5th largest economy in the world – and if it were an IHP member, it would be the second largest after the US. We will be joined by key state and local policy leaders who will share their perspectives on what makes California unique, on the one hand, but also a laboratory for ideas and approaches that can be replicated in all our countries. In the second part of the afternoon, we will hear about the policy context in IHP countries and how our organisations are responding to opportunities and safeguarding themselves from risk.

Affordable Housing as a Global Asset Class
With ongoing support from Morgan Stanley, over the past two years IHP leaders have been sharing strategies on new approaches to financial vehicles to develop and preserve affordable housing at scale and on more advantageous terms than are generally available. Over the past several months, this has resulted in the first bond issue from MORhomes, which was created by several IHP members from the UK; the launch and first issue of the HPC Housing Investment Corporation in Canada; and the National Housing Finance Investment Corporation, created by the Australian government in conjunction with our IHP colleagues. In the US, HPN and its partners are working to develop a new sector capital vehicle along these same lines. We will be issuing a paper ahead of the San Francisco exchange, which will illustrate the progress made to date, and tee up key areas for discussion – and critical next steps - as we work together establish affordable housing as a global asset class and what impact this can have on our sector.

From Homelessness to the Missing Middle: Addressing Supply through Innovation
Explore new construction technologies and creative solutions being deployed to help house the homeless and create affordable solutions for the missing middle, people with decent paying jobs that have been squeezed out of the housing market. Illustrated with examples of the work being done by IHP members, we’ll learn about new tactics, new funding, and new technology that is helping make a difference, how these can be more broadly applied, and what obstacles stand in the way.

IHP members are working with residents on health-related issues in multiple ways, from the housing sector seeking to create more effective partnerships with the health sector, to directly providing preventative and supportive services, to creating networks of referrals and connections for residents. This session will explore how we work with various populations, including families, seniors, the homeless, and special needs populations.

Lunch and Site Visit Context
1:30PM - 5:00PM     

Off-Site Visits in San Francisco - We will be offering a couple of off-site options in San Francisco, and one outside the city. The San Francisco options will be walking tours ��� and possibly a cable car ride – of affordable housing and community facilities in the Tenderloin and South of Market (SoMa) neighborhoods, as well as Mission Bay.

6:30PM - 9:30 PM
 
Reception and Dinner at the City Club of San Francisco - The City Club is located on the 10th floor of the San Francisco Stock Exchange Tower, which was designed by noted California architect Timothy Pflueger, who believed that great art should be an integral part of great architecture. And this elegant art deco structure does feature great art, including Diego Rivera’s "Allegory of California" mural, which the Mexican artist painted in 1931.

9:00AM - 7:00PM  Visit to Sonoma
Eden Housing CEO and IHP Chair Linda Mandolini is working with her colleagues in the Bay Area to plan a day trip to Sonoma County. Just an hour’s drive from San Francisco, Sonoma County is world famous for its 500 wineries and beautiful, rustic countryside. In the fall of 2017, Sonoma was in the news for less auspicious reasons as catastrophic wildfires caused dozens of casualties and extensive damage throughout the area; with hotter, drier weather patterns, the threat remains ever present and fire resiliency is one of the critical elements in development and management plans. With a population of 500,000, Sonoma also has attractive small cities – including Petaluma, Santa Rosa, and Sonoma - and a diverse population. Four HPN members own and operate affordable housing in the County – Eden, BRIDGE, MidPen, and Satellite Affordable Housing Associates.

The IHP visit to Sonoma will weave in all of these elements. We will look at the affordable housing work of HPN members and experience some of the best that the country has to offer in terms of wine and food. We are exploring having an optional bike-riding component and are looking at making the day both fun and informative. We will share more details as the schedule gets more fully defined.
