How Housing Matters Conference

National Building Museum Hosts Conference

National Building Museum On Thursday, October 14, 2014, the National Building Museum in Washington, DC is hosting a “How Housing Matters” conference. The conference will explore how having stable, secure, and affordable housing affects child development and education, physical and mental health, and long-term economic success.

This day-long event will explore these important connections and how policymakers and practitioners can better integrate programs and services to achieve improved outcomes for individuals, families, and communities. Key leaders, researchers, practitioners, and advocates from housing, education, health, and economic development will discuss practical and cross-platform solutions with local, state, and federal policymakers.

The agenda will build on the How Housing Matters initiative supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and efforts of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to utilize housing as a platform for improving quality of life.

The How Housing Matters conference is a project of the National Building Museum co-sponsored with the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and the Office of Policy Development & Research, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The conference is free but Pre-Registration is required.
