Introducing the HousingPolicy.org Forum: A New Place to Ask Questions and Share Ideas about Affordable Housing Policy
Thursday, February 19 at 1:30 p.m. UTC

undefinedThe Center for Housing Policy is proud to introduce the HousingPolicy.org Forum – a new, online tool that will enable affordable housing practitioners and policymakers to quickly and easily share ideas, innovations, and questions with their colleagues around the country. Organized around a variety of specific housing policy topics, the Forum will host ongoing discussions that are open to everyone and may be accessed and added to at any time. Initial discussion groups on the Forum include: Foreclosure Prevention, Neighborhood Stabilization, Rental Housing Preservation, Inclusionary Zoning, and Shared Equity Homeownership.

In the February 19 online chat, we will walk you through the nuts and bolts of the HousingPolicy.org Forum, describing the various features and settings that help ensure the Forum is accessible and easy to use. We will also talk about how this interactive technology can help to improve policymaking and practice at the local level.

Panelists: (see bios)
Rebecca S. Cohen, research associate for the Center for Housing Policy
Jim Gray, vice president of the Community Solutions Group at NCB Capital Impact
Jeffrey M. Lubell, executive director for the Center for Housing Policy
Todd Nedwick, assistant director for public policy at the National Housing Trust
Kathy Pettit, senior research associate in the Metropolitan Housing and Communities Policy Center at the Urban Institute

This KnowledgePlex chat is part of "Housing Solutions Week 2009," a series of events presented by the National Housing Conference (NHC) and its research affiliate the Center for Housing Policy focused on state and local strategies for responding to today's critical housing challenges. 

The opinions expressed in this event are those of the participants and do not necessarily represent the views of KnowledgePlex staff or its officers or directors.
