At our 2011 learning conference, practitioners and policymakers shared the best available information on how states and localities are working collaboratively and creatively across different policy silos to develop more sustainable and inclusive communities while reducing overall government costs.

Participants in the housing, transportation, environmental, planning and government fields gathered to learn how they can work with their colleagues to achieve the common goal of building the compact, sustainable, equitable communities of the future, giving residents of all income levels access to job centers, schools and other amenities.

Now you can review resources from sessions you missed—even if you didn't get a chance to attend.

HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan delivers the closing keynote address NHC's Cynthia Adcock and Leah Logan chat with an attendee at the NHC/Center exhibit booth. Local leaders from the D.C. region discuss development issues at the Town Hall Plenary.
