Now is the time to change policy and funding direction so we are ready for the housing needs of the over-65 population. With population growth for this demographic expected to exceed 120 percent by 2050, demand for affordable senior housing far outweighs the supply in New York. And the elderly will require unique approaches to housing to address housing cost burden, healthy and independent living, supportive services, and accessibility and location issues. Come hear from the experts about the special building designs, state of the art technologies, planning processes, funding approaches and cutting-edge services and resources being developed and implemented that will greatly impact affordable senior housing development over the next 10 years.
