Hot Off the Press: NHC and the Center are Hitting the Road and Hosting a 2-Day Transit-Oriented Development Extravaganza

National Housing Conference and the Center for Housing Policy will be hitting the road and heading to Denver, CO. Next week, NHC, the Center for Housing Policy and our partners are hosting two events in the Mile-High city focused on the intersection of housing and transportation.

On, Monday, September 27, NHC and the Center are hosting Partners in Innovation Including Affordable and Workforce Housing within Transit-Oriented Development. This national symposium examines the challenges and opportunities for developing and sustaining transit-oriented development (TOD) that includes affordable housing opportunities for working families and families with low- and moderate-incomes. The symposium is designed to develop stronger state and local policies supportive of more equitable TOD.

Tuesday, September 28, NHC and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation will be hosting Partners in Innovation: Preserving Affordable Rental Housing Near Transit. This policy forum will focus specifically on the connection between affordable rental housing preservation and transit. This forum marks the last in a series of three Partners in Innovation regional forums hosted by NHC and the MacArthur Foundation.

Attendees at both events include a variety of stakeholders, including federal, state and local policymakers; developers; housing and sustainability advocates; planners and funders. You can follow these Partners in Innovation events on Twitter using #HousingConnect. You can also join the conversation through a new Transit-Oriented Development discussion group on the Forum.
