BRIDGE Housing Corporation's Carol Galante Visits Berkeley, November 17, 2000

Carol J. Galante, President and CEO of BRIDGE Housing Corporation in San Francisco, presented an informal seminar at 12:00 noon, Friday, November 17, 2000, at the Goldman School of Public Policy, 2607 Hearst Avenue, on the UC Berkeley campus.  Galante's appearance was sponsored by the Berkeley Program on Housing and Urban Policy as part of its 2000-2001 seminar series on important topics in the field.

Ms. Galante discussed "New Capital Strategies For Affordable Housing Development" and the ways these strategies are implemented to increase housing opportunities. Her talk addressed the need for coordination among various financing streams in the typical subsidized housing project.  She detailed examples of BRIDGE's successful efforts to finesse community opposition and develop mainstream and service-enriched housing for lower-income communities.

BRIDGE Housing Corporation is one of the leading nonprofit housing developers in the nation. Its developments reflect how the public, private and non-profit sectors interact to create housing serving community needs.

Ms. Galante's appearance was the second of three such lunchtime seminars sponsored during the 2000-2001 academic year by the Berkeley Program on Housing and Urban Policy.  Lawrence Gotlieb, Vice President for Government and Legal Affairs at KB HOME (formerly the Kaufman and Broad Home Corporation) in Los Angeles, will appear on February 23, 2001.
