UCLA Ziman Center Pilots Change with Levine Affordable Housing Development Program

In 2018, UCLA Anderson's Ziman Center for Real Estate inaugurated the long-incubated Howard and Irene Levine Affordable Housing Development Program (LAHDP) specifically to impart interdisciplinary and highly specialized expertise to the next generation of affordable housing professionals.  According to Gabriel, "It's time for industry as well as nonprofits to benefit from a broader knowledge of how to create affordable housing using a 100 percent vetted toolkit carefully designed by UCLA faculty and industry experts." LAHDP teaches young professionals to envision how traditionally siloed agencies and sectors can work in collaboration, not just in tandem, to cut through divisions.
