This free, day-long event will explore how having stable, secure and affordable housing affects education, children’s health, and older adults’ ability to age in place.
The conference will showcase ways to integrate programs and services to achieve improved outcomes for individuals, families, and communities. Key leaders, researchers, practitioners, and advocates from housing, education, health, and aging discuss practical and cross-platform solutions with local, state, and federal policymakers.
The agenda builds on the How Housing Matters initiative supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and efforts of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to utilize housing as a platform for improving quality of life.
The How Housing Matters conference is a project of the National Building Museum co-sponsored with the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Office of Policy Development & Research, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the National Housing Conference.
