HPN Member Discount and Data Available on PolicyMap

SEPTEMBER 25, 2013

10-8-2013 5-38-21 PMBoston MA — HPN, the Housing Partnership Network, member data is now live in PolicyMap and available to anyone with an HPN member email address. We’re also pleased to announce that we have partnered with PolicyMap to offer members a 15 percent discount on PolicyMap’s standard and premium accounts, available to both new and current subscribers. HPN members can also access the data by creating a free, basic account in PolicyMap.

Members interested in purchasing a standard or premium account with PolicyMap should use the promo code HPN15 at the time of purchase. For current subscribers, the discount will be available at your next subscription renewal.

PolicyMap is a GIS data mapping tool, developed by HPN member The Reinvestment Fund, that allows users to upload custom datasets and overlay that information with built-in data points or layers, such as demographics, home sale statistics, health data, mortgage trends, and school performance scores. HPN member data has been pre-loaded into the “My Sites” tab visible at the top of the left-hand column once you are logged into PolicyMap. By selecting “Housing Partnership Network Members” (under “My Site”), anyone with an HPN member email address can see corporate member data, such as organization name, location, website, business lines, and production data. Additionally, there are filters set up to allow for easy search by category (e.g., organizations that develop multifamily rental housing). Note: If you recently created a new account, it may take up to a day for the HPN member data to be visible.

If you have any questions about accessing HPN member data on PolicyMap or the 15 percent discount, please contact Jessica Davidson-Sawyer.
