Funders Together to End Homelessness – Los Angeles Network is pleased to invite private philanthropic funders to a session focused on affordable housing development. This session is designed to give funders an opportunity to learn more about the process for developing affordable / supportive housing in Los Angeles, covering the basics of subsidized housing funding sources, and the planning and approvals needed to start construction. After an overview of the general process, you will gain a better understanding of how recent and proposed changes are impacting future development.


About the Event:

  • Have you ever wondered what it takes to build housing in Los Angeles?
  • How do changes locally (Measures HHH and H), statewide (No Place Like Home) or nationally (federal tax reform) impact development?
  • How would the Permanent Supportive Housing ordinance potentially change the development process in the City of Los Angeles?
  • With new government subsidy sources available, how can philanthropy be impactful?


Ann Sewill, Vice President of Health and Housing from the California Community Foundation will be guiding this discussion. She has held leadership roles at an LA-based nonprofit developer, affordable housing lender and local government.


Ann Sewill oversees the California Community Foundation’s (CCF) health and housing portfolio, working to develop permanent, affordable housing and to address persistent issues and root causes affecting the health of Angelenos. Before joining CCF, she was Vice President and California Director of Enterprise Community Partners; Assistant General Manager of the Los Angeles Housing Department; the Executive Director of the Los Angeles Community Design Center; and the Housing Director for the City of Santa Monica. She also worked with the Los Angeles offices of the California Department of Housing and Community Development and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Ann recently served on the Board of Directors of the Los Angeles branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and is the Immediate Past Chair of the Affordable Housing Advisory Council of the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco. She has also chaired the Affordable Housing Advisory Council of the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco, and served on the California Department of Housing and Community Development’s Loan and Grant Committee and on the board of directors of the Southern California Association of Non-Profit Housing.
