 2022 Spotlight Series

Building a Partnership Network for Affordable Housing

Wednesday, October 19, 2022, 1:00 – 2:30 PM EDT



Join us for a conversation about how the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is working with public and private partners to explore options for affordable housing in Nevada.

Learn how BLM and partnering agencies renewed their partnership network, as they updated the guidance for potential land transfers (sales) to support affordable housing projects throughout Nevada. 

This work is made possible through the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act of 1998 (SNPLMA or the act), Public Law 105–263, as amended that allows BLM to sell public land in Nevada specifically for affordable housing.

The 90-minute webinar included a welcome, presentation, roundtable dialogue with BLM and program partners, and Q&A. Featured partnership practices included:

  • Stakeholder analysis: identifying and building relationships with interested parties
  • Collaborative process design: joint fact-finding, building a common vocabulary, creating a shared vision, facilitation
  • Understanding the decision space: authorities, regulations and flexibility
