In many communities, land is scarce and expensive, driving up the cost of housing and limiting the opportunity to build more homes in areas of opportunity. This panel will discuss successful partnerships that have leveraged the real estate owned by houses of worship and schools to build more housing while also investing in those communities. The panel’s speakers will each bring their experience developing strategies and partnerships to unlock underutilized land. Examples include Austin’s Independent School District, St. Austin’s partnership with Greystar, and Enterprises’ faith-based development initiative.
