2019 Solutions for Affordable Housing

December 3, 2019 - December 4, 2019

On Dec. 3, 2019, close to two hundred housing leaders working in housing policy, finance and advocacy; community development; real estate; home building, as well as government officials joined us for Solutions for Affordable Housing at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The day was packed with sessions to discuss strategies to solve the most pressing policy issues that will have the most impact on how housing policy shapes up for 2020 and beyond.

The next day, housers joined us for Advocacy Day to take housing to the Hill. We were honored to have Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.) and Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Mich.) share remarks on their policy priorities and the outlook for 2020 housing legislation.

We thank everyone who attended and a special thanks to our 2019 speakers and sponsors!
