(MPC’s Robin Snyderman is on the planning committee for this conference, and will be among the dozens of nationwide panelists featured in this important event.)

Mark your calendar to join colleagues from around the country for a timely conference exploring the full spectrum of innovative state and local housing policy solutions that may be useful in achieving more sustainable and inclusive communities.

Given the severe fiscal challenges that they face, states and localities are looking for more efficient ways of utilizing existing resources to achieve their housing, transportation and environmental goals.  Solutions for Sustainable Communities will arm practitioners and policymakers with the best available information on how states and localities are working collaboratively and creatively across these different policy silos to develop more sustainable and inclusive communities while reducing overall government costs.  

Solutions for Sustainable Communities will be designed to be useful to both newcomers and experienced practitioners and policymakers by offering a comprehensive, highly interactive educational experience over the two-and-a-half day conference.  The conference will include opportunities for peer-to-peer learning, mobile workshops, facilitated discussions, panel discussions, networking receptions and breakfasts, and plenary sessions.

You won’t want to miss this opportunity to connect with peers, learn from experts, and share your story in a dynamic learning environment! 

Registration for Solutions for Sustainable Communities will open in May! For more information and to register visit NHC and the Center for Housing Policy
