But the Policy Forum provides us with the opportunity to hear form national partner experts in Washington, hear about new opportunities in our collective work to create affordable homes and end homelessness and build momentum for our July 2017 New Jersey Congressional Reception.
This year’s Forum will feature a wide array of policy-leaders and other experts from around the country on strategies for achieving affordable housing solutions in the changing post-election landscape.
The Forum will provide attendees the opportunity to engage with leaders from Capitol Hill and the new Administration on the current state of affordable housing and emerging challenges and opportunities.
In conjunction with the Forum, Monarch Housing and the Network will be working with our state partners to organize Hill visits with our Congressional delegation and staff. This year, more then ever, these Hill visits will be critical to letting our elected officials hear our message “No Housing Cuts.”
These and other thought-leaders, policy experts, researchers, affordable housing advocates and providers, and low income residents will discuss the best strategies for meeting the housing needs of the lowest income households in America.
NLIHC has invited HUD Secretary Nominee Dr. Ben Carson to share his thoughts about America’s affordable housing challenges, HUD’s role in addressing them, and his priorities for the future.
A special session for low income residents will be held on Sunday, April 2, 2017 from 9 am – 1 pm. Residents attending this session should plan on arriving on Saturday evening.
A limited number of shared-lodging hotel scholarships will be awarded on a first-come-first-served basis to low income residents who are current NLIHC members and who pay their own Forum registration fee (“self-pay participants”).
