Solutions for Housing Communications 2015 Convening

APRIL 7, 2015 - 8:00 AM to APRIL 8, 2015 - 5:00 PM PT

Seattle, WA

Gaining community acceptance for affordable housing has long been a sticking point in developing successful communities. National and local polling data often show support for solutions to homelessness and housing affordability challenges, but when it comes to siting, neighbors often balk at the prospect of affordable housing being built nearby. Community opposition can create delays that put developments in jeopardy, and make it tougher for the next affordable development to succeed. 

The National Housing Conference's (NHC's) Solutions for Housing Communications 2015 Convening will connect you with over 200 affordable housing developers, advocates, funders and government officials for panels, workshops and round-table discussions on challenges and opportunities in community acceptance. You will discover best practices for countering community opposition and exploring creative new approaches to meeting this perennial challenge.
