IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATES – IMPLICATIONS FOR HAND PROGRAMS

Like many of you, HAND has been closely monitoring developments as it relates to the outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel “coronavirus disease 2019” (COVID-19). As health officials urge extreme caution in public spaces and large gatherings, the health and safety of HAND members and the communities we serve is our top priority.

If you are registered for an upcoming HAND program, your registration still stands and we are looking forward to you joining us. HAND has several Training & Capacity Building activities scheduled over the coming weeks and months, so we are staying in close touch with all of our registered guests and speakers to ensure you are kept abreast of any scheduling changes specific to these sessions. Due to the evolving nature of the pandemic, some sessions will be converted to live webcasts, while others will be rescheduled. Please see below for a listing of upcoming events. The sessions that have been converted to webcasts are noted by the COVID-19 icon. We are prepared to make the appropriate shifts to ensure we can still provide content to our members, while keeping your safety top of mind.

Most importantly, we encourage you to be mindful of the communities we are missioned to serve. The most vulnerable among us will suffer the greatest impacts. HAND plans to share opportunities for us to support our neighbors in upcoming communications.  In the interim, we advise you to follow the guidelines and updates provided by the CDC and state health departments:

We understand this is an extremely fluid situation, and will provide updates as they develop. Many thanks in advance for your flexibility over the coming weeks.

HAND is a community that represents many communities, so we plan to keep our COVID-19 page updated with information our members can use as you explore ways to fill in the gaps for the communities we serve. If you aware of other resources we can add to this page send us an email at info@handhousing.org.

DC’s Building Energy Performance Standards Impact on Affordable Housing: Session 1

Date:
Wednesday, August 21, 2019
9:30 AM – 12:00 PM

Location:
Loft at 600 F
600 F Street NW, Washington, DC 20004


HAND and the National Housing Trust (NHT) will convene stakeholders to discuss the potential impact of DC’s new Building Energy Performance Standards (BEPS) on affordable housing, and develop implementation recommendations for the Department of Energy and the Environment (DOEE).  All multi-family buildings larger than 10,000 square feet will be required to meet D.C.’s Building Energy Performance Standards.  As the District works to achieve its sustainability goals to be the healthiest, greenest, and most livable city for all residents, it is important that practitioners working in the affordable housing arena are at the table, working in partnership with the city to ensure successful implementation of the new Building Energy Performance Standards (BEPS). The Department of Energy & Environment (DDOE) welcomes these discussions with our members and will be an active participant in the working groups.

More information about BEPS can be found here.

DOEE is seeking input on the implementation of BEPS on affordable housing developers. Several undecided implementation issues will be addressed in DOEE rulemaking. It is critically important that the affordable housing community works together to develop recommendations for DOEE.

NHT and HAND will host three peer-group sessions to discuss implementation of the BEPS, and the impact this rulemaking will have on affordable multifamily housing in the District. The first session will provide an overview of BEPS and include discussion of program structure and implementation.

We are excited to host the following speakers:

 
Katie Bergfeld,
Branch Chief, Building Performance and Enforcement, DC Department of Energy & Environment
Kate Johnson,
Chief, Green Building & Climate Branch, Urban Sustainability Administration, DC Department of Energy & Environment
Casey Studhalter,

NOVEMBER 2019

The Role of Houses of Worship in a Changing Community: The Suburbanization of Poverty and Urban Displacement 

Date:
Thursday, November 7, 2019
9:00 AM – 2:00 PM

Location:
Washington National Cathedral
3103 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington, DC 20016

We all have our particular gifts that we have to give, specific needs that prevent us from reaching our goals, and we may or may not even know the actions or next steps we need to take in order to better serve and address the affordable housing challenges facing the communities we are in and around us.

As November 7th approaches, we wanted to invite participants to reflect on how they can meaningfully contribute to the dialogue taking placing at the upcoming Summit:

HAND members: what gifts could you offer to support faith-based organizations who have are willing to play a larger role in the development of their communities?

Members of the faith-based community: Can community development organizations and other institutions with specific expertise help you to address the challenges facing your congregations? How can the many industries (i.e. architects, real estate developers, service providers and legal professionals) share their skills and knowledge in creative and effective ways?

As demographics shift and new economic and cultural realities emerge – we must examine the role of development in helping houses of worship remain relevant and impactful in a changing context. Join Enterprise Community PartnersWashington National Cathedral and Housing Association of Nonprofit Developers (HAND) on Thursday, November 7 from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm, at the Washington National Cathedral for a forum where participants will explore the role the faith community can play in the development of affordable housing and community facilities across the Washington region.

The agenda will feature an interactive dialogue with national and local faith leaders who are engaged in the challenges that face houses of worship, religious networks, and their local communities. We will also examine how government and private sector partners – non-profit and for-profit – can collaborate with the faith community in developing housing and community facilities that serve a range of needs – especially for low and moderate-income residents.

Don’t miss this opportunity for both clergy and lay leaders of all backgrounds to dialogue with industry practitioners on how congregations and surrounding communities can be served through affordable housing and community facilities. This Summit is sure to empower, enlighten, and engage all those gathered to forge connections towards meaningful outcomes.

We are excited to host the following speakers:

Registration Information:
There is no fee to attend the summit; however registrations are required. For questions about registration, please contact Eugene Kim.

12:00 PM – 2:00 PM

Location:
Mt. Vernon Place United Methodist Church

In today’s development climate, the most qualified or worthy initiative is not always the one that wins in the marketplace. The initiative that wins is the one that communicates the clearest. How do we reframe the importance of affordable housing so that it informs, influences, and ultimately unites your stakeholders towards the common goal of producing quality housing that is affordable to all?

Join HAND for Framing Affordable Housing Messages to Influence Your Stakeholders on Tuesday, December 3rd. The afternoon will feature practitioners that are on the ground facing community resistance and distrust caused by confusion and misrepresentation of their efforts to build affordable housing. The session will begin with Mission First Housing and their partners at Sage Communications who will share a case study on how they overcame challenges and ultimately got through to stakeholders in Philadelphia, PA. The conversation will be followed by a panel of practitioners who will candidly discuss their own experiences and perspectives of how messaging effects their ability to accomplish their mission.

Northern Virginia Affordable Housing Alliance & HAND Presents:
Rx for Building Health and Housing Partnerships

Date:
Wednesday, February 26, 2020
9:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Location:
Center for Total Health Kaiser Permanente
700 2nd St, NE Washington, DC 20002

RESEARCH TELLS US that only 30% of a person’s health is addressed in a medical facility. The remainder of our health outcomes are affected by the conditions that exist in the communities where we live, work, learn and play. For years, affordable housing and community development professionals have identified these elements – social determinants of health – as critical to creating healthy, thriving communities. As the healthcare industry seeks to lower medical costs and provide better health outcomes for their patients, forward-thinking institutions are investing in these social determinants of health, including investments in affordable housing production.

While stories of successful health & housing partnerships around the country are growing more frequent, only a few of these joint ventures have developed in our region. What are the challenges in bringing two different industry sectors together? What are the shared benefits that also accrue to residents and patients? Join us at Rx for Building Health and Housing Partnerships as our panelists discuss these issues and how we can bring these innovative investments to the greater Washington region.

Session #2: Implicit Bias
Julie Nelson,
Director, Government Alliance on Race & Equity, Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society

Implicit bias is a concept based on an emerging body of cognitive research which identifies ways in which unconscious patterns people inevitably develop in their brains to organize information actually affect individuals’ attitudes and actions, thus creating real-world implications, even though individuals may not even be aware that those biases exist within themselves. Years of exposure to structural and cultural racialization and privilege have embedded stereotypes and biases in individual psyches and the broader culture. Due to the link between cultural stereotypes and narratives, and systemic policies, practices and behaviors, implicit bias is one part of the system of inequity that serves to justify inequitable polices, practices and behavior. Nelson will integrate the Implicit Association Test into her presentation and highlight the ways in which bias and racism play out at the individual, institutional, and structural levels.

Session #3: White Privilege
Robin DiAngelo,
Ph.D., Author, What Does it Mean to be White?

Most of our current laws, regulations, policies and practices in areas like housing, health-care, education and law enforcement were established, or justified, in part because of assumptions about what is normal, appropriate or desirable. These assumptions tend to reflect dominant cultural narratives or norms – for example, what constitutes a “family,” who is dangerous, which groups are deserving of societal support and which are not, etc.  Over time, the consequence of laws, regulations, policies and practices is a multigenerational system of inequity. This system reinforces stereotypes and access to organizational and system power. When these assumptions are codified into laws, system policies and organizational and community practices, they are part of what creates persistent advantages for some groups and persistent disadvantages for others.
