Palmetto Affordable Housing Forum


Statewide Forum Addresses the Future of Affordable Housing in South Carolina


Join us for the state’s most comprehensive convocation of housing advocates, professionals and policy makers. 

The role of the housing market and its future has never been more important than it is now and will be in the coming year. Has the housing market turned a corner? What is available to help first-time homeowners? How can quality, affordable housing foster community and economic development? Questions abound, and the annual Palmetto Affordable Housing Forum (Forum), coming April 22-23, 2014 at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center, is the place to discuss these issues and prepare for the trends, challenges and opportunities that await our industry during these next critical years.

The Forum is hosted by the South Carolina State Housing Finance and Development Authority (SC Housing), the Affordable Housing Coalition of South Carolina, US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs and U.S.D.A. – Rural Development. This event, now in its nineteenth year, is expected to attract more than 500 housing professionals – including representatives from local and state government and for profit and nonprofit organizations across the state.

Designed for both the novice and the experienced housing professional, as well as those interested in improving the supply and condition of affordable housing in the state, the Forum offers South Carolinians working in the housing arena and related industries an opportunity to stay abreast of the latest developments in affordable housing and provides the perfect arena to share ideas and build relationships that can help expand housing choices for our citizens.
