There is an upcoming national conference on state and local housing policies hosted by NHC to take place in Atlanta, Georgia from September 16th to the 18th:
Millions of Americans continue to struggle with severe housing cost burdens, foreclosures, and other housing challenges that undermine their health, educational achievement, and economic well-being. Solutions 2013 will arm practitioners, advocates, policymakers and program administrators with the best available information on how localities and states can work collaboratively and creatively to address residents’ housing challenges and develop inclusive, resilient and sustainable communities. The conference will be designed to be useful to both newcomers and experienced practitioners and policymakers by offering a comprehensive, highly interactive educational experience over the three-day period. The conference will include opportunities for peer-to-peer learning, mobile workshops, facilitated discussions, panel discussions, networking receptions and breakfasts, and plenary sessions.
