Financing the social housing sector: which models?
The recession following the COVID-19 pandemic grants an increasing role to housing, making it especially harder for the most deprived to work in decent conditions. At the same time, social housing is considered an essential lever to achieve energy efficiency objectives and fight against energy poverty, as set out by the Renovation Wave. It is finally a key principle in the implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights. As a result, adequate and sufficient sources of funding are required.
This webinar will be the occasion to explore different models of financing of the social housing sector in Europe and how they can be articulated. National Promotional Banks and Institutions (NPBIs), long-term investors, very active in financing social housing will share their experience in articulating national public resources, EU funding and private capital, along social impact private investors and experts on the field.
