Network Expands Under One Roof to a Two Day Conference
The Housing and Community Development Network of New Jersey‘s (The Network) Annual Community Development Conference and Membership Meeting, Under One Roof, will be held Thursday, October 19, 2017 and Thursday, October 20, 2017.
This year’s Under One Roof is expanding. More details will follow in the near future.
Last year, the Network’s conference sold out for the second year in a row. For 2017, Under One Roof is moving to the Hyatt Regency New Brunswick.
Under One Roof has become New Jersey’s premier gathering of community development practitioners, housing advocates and private sector partners.
The Network expects over 250 policy, planning and organizing experts, as well as public and business leaders from around the state.
Since 1989, the Housing and Community Development Network of New Jersey has worked to improve the environment for the work of community development corporations (CDCs), and to strengthen their capacity to create housing and revitalize distressed neighborhoods throughout New Jersey.
The Network is a statewide association of over 250 non-profit housing and community development corporations, individuals, professional organizations, and prominent New Jersey corporations that support the creation of housing choices and economic opportunities for low- and moderate-income community residents.
The Network and its members share a commitment to promoting economic justice and the empowerment of low-income individuals and communities, and encouraging wider participation in the framing and implementation of public policies.
They support their CDC members by providing targeted technical assistance and educational programs, pursuing additional resources and improved public policies, and conducting research on ways to enhance the impact and effectiveness of the community development sector.
