Breakout Session: Advancing Housing and Homelessness Policies

Being housed is central to just about every issue philanthropy is working to address. Whether its health, homelessness, economic development, or education we know that having affordable, sustainable housing is key. And against the backdrop of billions in stimulus dollar and an environment forever changed by a pandemic we have a unique opportunity. Our panel of funders, practitioners, and experts will lift up how we leverage the funding that’s coming down the pike, support variety of approaches and empower communities so they are an active part of the conversation. We’ll also explore how our current political environment provides an opportunity to advance housing and homelessness policies that would have been challenging to take on prior to the pandemic. This is a conversation for everyone who is interested in exploring how we build back better with a focus on equity.
