2020 NLIHC HOUSING POLICY FORUM

CANCELLED

March 25 - 27,  2020

notice

The Disaster Housing Recovery Coalition will lead recurring national calls on Coronavirus and Homelessness/Housing every Monday at 2:30pmET. We are thoroughly devoted to ensuring members of our community, from across the country, are fully equipped with the information and resources they need to respond to this national outbreak of Coronavirus and its impact on people experiencing homelessness and low-income households. Register for these calls at: https://tinyurl.com/ru73qan  and visit our Schedule for other Working Group/Calls.

 

The 2020 Policy Forum will provide a wide array of opportunities to engage with affordable housing advocates, thought-leaders, policy experts, researchers, housing providers, low income residents, and elected leaders on seizing this unique moment in America to advance policy solutions to homelessness and housing poverty. As awareness about the affordable housing crisis in America grows, federal policymakers on both sides of the aisle are responding with bold proposals. Homelessness and affordable housing advocates must mobilize to lead the way.

Organizing Awards

The deadline for nominations has passed. 

NLIHC will announce the 2020 Annual Organizing Award recipients for statewide/ regional achievements and/or for citywide or neighborhood achievements at the Forum!  A session about their successes and strategies will also be featured.

The NLIHC Organizing Awards recognize outstanding achievement during 2019 in statewide, regional, citywide, neighborhood, and/or resident organizing that furthers NLIHC’s mission of achieving socially just public policy to ensure people with the lowest incomes in the U.S. have affordable and decent homes. Special consideration is given to efforts that incorporate tenant- or resident-centered organizing.

Resident Session

These workshops are reserved for renters, residents, and community leaders.

NLIHC has long offered special sessions for low-income residents prior to the start of the larger Housing Policy Forum. Based on feedback we received from residents that they would appreciate more time for resident-specific learning and an opportunity to interact with NLIHC state partners, NLIHC will offer additional resident sessions starting on Tuesday, March 24, at 2:00 p.m., including a dinner with state partners that evening. The special resident sessions will continue on Wednesday, March 25 at 8:30 a.m. prior to the full Forum start at 1:00 p.m.

Resident Member Scholarships: The deadline for scholarships has passed. Thank you!
