The 2015 NLIHC Housing Legislative Forum will be strategic and focused in its design, geared specifically for NLIHC members who are actively engaged in and committed to influencing legislative action on national housing policies affecting extremely low income individuals.
With the Federal Housing Finance Agency having announced this week that the suspension on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s obligation to fund the National Housing Trust Fund has been lifted, we will have much to discuss!
The forum will feature a series of provocative plenary speakers and panel discussions on:
Implementation of the Trust Fund,
Other critical legislative priorities for 2015 and
The most recent research on low-income housing and poverty.
Key Congressional, Administration, national nonprofit leaders and experts will speak about the changing affordable housing landscape and their take on priorities for future. Keynote speakers at the Forum include new Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro and Ford Foundation President Darren Walker. On the third day of the Forum, participants will take their priorities to Capitol Hill.
The Annual NLIHC Leadership Awards Reception will cap off the three days of activities and will be held on the evening of March 3, 2015.
Please note: Because space is tight at this year’s event and NLIHC welcomes as many organizations as possible to participate, it will only be able to accommodate a maximum of three attendees per organization.
A limited number of hotel scholarships are available for NLIHC low-income members who are self-paying. Contact Christine Campbell by email or 202-662-1530 x247.
