Affordable Housing - Confronting Regulatory Barriers Together

HUD invites you and your organization to join us for Affordable Housing - Confronting Regulatory Barriers Together, a free, one-day roundtable to discuss regulatory barriers and procedures that impede the availability of affordable housing in Arkansas.

The Roundtable will be held on Thursday, July 21, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service, 2301 South University, Little Rock.

Participants include nonprofit organizations, industry groups and federal, state and local governments. James R. �Bobby� Rayburn, past president of the National Association of Home Builders, will also be on hand.

The Roundtable is co-sponsored by HUD, the Arkansas Homebuilders Association, Mortgage Bankers Association of Arkansas, Arkansas Chapter of NAHRO, Arkansas Association of Community Development Directors, and USDA Rural Housing Development.

Barriers to affordable housing include public statutes, ordinances, regulations, fees, processes and procedures that significantly restrict the development of affordable housing without providing a commensurate health or safety benefit. The regulatory climate is changing. Many communities are actively removing these barriers and promoting the development of housing that was formerly beyond the reach of many working families.
