As our nation faces an affordable housing crisis, it is our job, as leaders in the industry, to explore and develop new and innovative policy strategies that not only address the housing crisis, but also intersect with other critical components to providing successful housing including healthcare, civil rights and community economic development. This year’s Conference will provide a venue for the discussion of the latest cross-cutting policy ideas to tackle the daunting task of increasing the amount of affordable housing in a nation that is in desperate need. In particular, a number of panels and a plenary will highlight the critical intersection between housing and healthcare. In addition, attendees at the conference can learn how the latest tools in the industry, including Qualified Opportunity Zones and Income Averaging, are being used to boost affordable housing developments. They can also learn to navigate transfers of Section 8 Project Based Rental Assistance and the RAD for PRAC program. Additional panel topics will include discussions of fair housing, tax credit equity, bonds, public housing, HUD-insured financing, and community economic development. The Conference will also recognize the invaluable contributions of the Forum's members to the advancement of affordable housing and community development across the nation.
The Conference will be held, May 22-24, 2019 in Washington, DC.
