Join WP+D for a networking brown bag on Wednesday, February 20th from 12:00PM-1:00PM to talk with this month's featured guest: Stacie Young, Director, The Preservation Compact.
Stacie Young is Director of The Preservation Compact, a policy collaborative located at Community Investment Corporation to preserve affordable rental housing in Cook County. Young coordinates policy and programmatic initiatives to further rental preservation, tackling issues including energy retrofits, property tax incentives, and building code relief. Under her leadership, the Compact recently launched an innovative $35 million fund to encourage the creation of affordable rental units in strong markets. She also led efforts to develop a new $26 million loan pool to finance distressed 1-4 unit buildings, and a separate $5 million CDFI partnership to improve 1-4 unit buildings. Prior to her work with the Compact, Young worked for the City of Chicago's Office of the Mayor, the Chicago Department of Housing, and Diversity Inc., a fair housing coalition in the south suburbs of Chicago.
