The Conference is over - but keep in touch!
The National Rural Housing Conferenceis a gathering of housing and community development organizations that serve rural areas, national housing and rural related associations and groups, federal agency and hill staff, and stakeholders interested in affordable housing in rural America.
Promises to Keep in Challenging Times is the theme of this conference. This theme brings to mind the vision and promises America has made through the Housing Act of 1949 and all subsequent housing legislation and policy. While these promises, that include the opportunity for quality affordable housing, still remain the country continues to face a difficult fiscal situation with many questions or concerns about what can be done to protect affordable housing as an industry in the future, particularly in rural areas. Keeping the vision and promises is important, not just to increase the quality of life for low-income Americans, but also to build stronger and more sustainable communities as a whole.
Each registrant will also receive a copy of the 2012 edition of Taking Stock, one of HAC’s signature publications. The report analyzes 2010 Census data related to rural people, poverty, and housing, illustrated with helpful charts and enlivened by case studies of some of the poorest counties in the U.S. Like HAC’s Poverty in the United States map, Taking Stock is an excellent resource for rural community-based organizations.
Hear about the major issues of the day
The Conference features nearly 40 workshops where participants can learn best practices for housing development, organizational management, resource development and innovative approaches to housing and community development. The Conference also includes a pre-Conference day, packed with gatherings for coalitions, association, and working groups.
