Investing for Change: Local Investment Networks and the Housing Crisis

On January 26, 2022 Local Investment Networks (LINs) from around Washington State took a deep dive into the current housing crisis and how LINs can be involved. Following a presentation by housing expert Bill Barberg, president and founder of InsightFormation Inc., participants broke out into groups to address specific housing issues, such as using charitable capital to support housing, creating an ADU ecosystem, navigating short-term rentals, innovative ownership models and supporting successful housing rentals.
