Center for Community Progress Foreclosure Workshop: Jan. 24

The national Center for Community Progress will conduct a workshop on mitigating the effects of foreclosure for AHAND and G-STAND next Thursday, January 24.

The Center for Community Progress is the nation’s preeminent organization addressing issues of vacant properties – both the prevention of abandonment and adaptive reuse. Its staff in Flint, Mich., Washington D.C., and New Orleans, La. provide advocacy, technical assistance and organizational development services to governments and advocates throughout the nation. Community Progress helps neighborhoods, cities, counties and states forge and implement effective strategies to prevent and reuse vacant properties. Frank Alexander, law professor at Emory University, was one of the Center’s founding members.

The workshop is open to anyone concerned about mitigating the devastating effects of foreclosures, but is especially geared toward nonprofit housing developers (including CDCs) and governmental housing and community development agencies. This event will provide a unique opportunity for low-cost, local training usually only available nationally.

This workshop (see agenda and bios here) is also one of three scheduled for the first quarter of this year. This handout gives a description of the three-seminar series. Anyone interested may register online at for one seminar or all three. By registering for all three now, registrants can receive a substantial discount.
