NHC 2015 Annual Policy Symposium
How Housing Can Help Individuals and Families Succeed 
June 12, 2015
9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
(Registration and breakfast: 8:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.)  
Washington Marriott Metro Center 
Washington, D.C.

NHC’s 2015 policy symposium brings together housing leaders from across the country to explore the many ways that housing can support families and individuals find their own path toward success while helping strengthen the communities in which they live. Affordable housing, whether rented or owned, can serve as a platform for education, health, savings and more. Discussions throughout the day will focus on ways that federal policy can guide and empower for-profit and nonprofit housing stakeholders to deliver housing in ways that strengthen families and communities.

Agenda

Keynote: TBA

Research presentation:
Megan Sandel, MD, MPH, principal investigator, Children’s Health Watch

 

Panel: The future of low-income homeownership

The current tight credit market is leaving many potential homebuyers unserved, particularly in low-income and minority communities.  Panelists will discuss how housing policy and mortgage lending can change to better serve the whole market, building on the lessons learned from the housing bubble and subsequent crash.  Topics include: proven techniques for sustainable lending to low-income borrowers, how housing counseling can mitigate risk, ways to achieve a competitive credit market in underserved areas, and how to address practical economic limitations on mortgage lending.

 

Panel:  Affordable rental housing as a platform for success

High-quality affordable housing is more than just shelter. It can provide the opportunity for people to improve their lives or live with greater dignity. Service enriched housing has a track record of success in making a difference in residents’ lives. Clear potential exists to link service enriched housing to new pay for success models. In addition, new approaches to resident assessment, services at scale and incorporating reliable broadband are promising strategies for service enriched housing.  Panelists will discuss approaches to determine the most cost effective approaches, replicate and scale strategies and attract funding, including family self-sufficiency funds. Service enriched housing can make a difference in children’s educational success, adults’ job skills, and resident’s physical and mental health. Panelists will explore how these solutions strengthen the lives of their residents, the fabric of their communities and the viability of their properties.
