Solutions 2013: National Conference on State and Local Housing Policy
September 16, 2013 - September 18, 2013
Solutions 2013, the national conference on state and local housing policy, is full of great speakers. From Habitat for Humanity International CEO Jonathan T.M. Reckford to HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan to the dozens of national and local housing practitioners and advocates sharing their wisdom at our workshops and roundtables, there will be no shortage of experts at this event.
But there’s more to Solutions than just big-name speakers. Solutions 2013 includes four concurrent workshop tracks, including a practical, research-driven track called How Housing Matters. Presented in partnership with the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, this track ties together current research on the intersection of housing and other social issues with great work housing professionals are doing on the ground, and the public policies that can enable these efforts to move forward. These workshops feature professionals from across the country whose work crosses silos to ensure housing interventions benefit whole people, whole families, and whole communities.
Each How Housing Matters session at Solutions reveals ways that good housing policy can advance social goals Americans care about, like improving educational outcomes, keeping older adults healthy and ensuring our veterans can live with stability and dignity. And the How Housing Matters track has some big names of its own, like panelists Heather Schwartz, Ph.D., of the Rand Corporation and Dan Immergluck, Ph.D., of Georgia Tech University.
With interdisciplinary sessions, branch out of your areas of expertise and interest to stimulate the creative thinking that will help you find the solutions your community needs for its growing housing affordability challenges. Learn more and register today!
