VENTANA FUND'S PARTNERSHIP WITH ULI NM
Ventana Fund is a proud annual sponsor of the Urban Land Institute of New Mexico (ULI NM) and partners with them several times a year on housing summit events throughout the state of New Mexico. Ventana Fund's mission is to create and preserve affordable housing in NM and it is an honor to bring local leadership and community members together to solve the housing crisis in cities across the state.
New Mexico is experiencing a housing crisis. There is not enough housing to fill the current demand at a range of income levels. Ventana Fund and ULI NM are partnering with local leaders to assemble a series of housing summits that drill down to identify local assets that can be leveraged to provide new housing opportunities throughout the state. These events have been hosted in Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Espanola, and Las Vegas.

With great success from the September 2022 Albuquerque Housing Crisis Summit, the local leadership of the NM Chapter of the Urban Land Institute (ULI NM) shifted their focus to Northern NM and hosted a Housing Summit workshop in Espanola, NM. Previous Housing Summits have led to community leaders, the private sector and neighborhoods working together to create more housing. Aware that Northern NM is seeing a housing crisis with significant growth in jobs, but a lack of new units and single-family homes, the ULI leadership team led over 60 community leaders through a series of presentations and questions to develop potential solutions.

In coordination with New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority (NMMFA) as part of their Housing Summit 2022, the local leadership of the NM Chapter of the Urban Land Institute (ULI NM) hosted a Housing Crisis workshop. This summit was similar to one held in Santa Fe in 2017 that led to community leaders, the private sector and neighborhoods working together to create more housing. Aware that single family housing prices as well as multifamily rental prices were seeing double digit annual rent growth related to economic expansion, the ULI leadership team led over 90 community leaders through a series of presentations and questions to develop potential solutions.
