As the nation continues to seek solutions to the housing crisis facing our country, the need to help working families live in an affordable home near their workplace is more important than ever. Register today to join the National Association of REALTORS® on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 at the historic Congress Plaza Hotel in Chicago, Illinois for the Bring Workers Home: 2012 Workforce Housing Forum. The ULI Terwilliger Center for Housing is pleased to serve as a partner on this forum alongside other national and local housing organizations including NeighborWorks America and the Metropolitan Planning Council.
