Housing Policy Website to debut on January 29th

Housing PolicyThe National Housing Conference and its research affiliate the Center for Housing Policy will launch a new online guide to state and local housing policy developed by the Center on January 29. This is an important resource that will help all of us to improve public policy on the local and state level to both end homelessness and to increase the supply of supportive housing.

KnowledgePlex will be offering a two-day series of online workshops about high-impact housing policies that states and localities can use to improve housing outcomes for low- to moderate-income working families. They have teamed up with the National Housing Conference and its research affiliate the Center for Housing Policy for these events.

The dates and times are:

Wednesday, January 30 at 2 p.m. ET

Thursday, January 31 at 2 p.m. ET

Thursday’s discussion will focus on how to put individual housing policy tools together to form an effective state and local housing strategy.
