About Connecticut Affordable Housing Conference: Thriving Communities
Partnership for Strong Communities (PSC) will host the fourth annual Connecticut Affordable Housing Conference (CAHC) virtually November 13-14, 2023. The CAHC is our opportunity to come together to learn, share, and collaborate to expand housing affordability and access in Connecticut.
We are excited to host two days of sessions relevant to affordable housing advocates, policymakers, developers, lenders, funders, housing authorities, and the public. This year we will feature sessions spotlighting strategies and solutions that establish housing as the key to thriving communities. The CAHC will conclude with an in-person conference reception on Tuesday evening.
PSC promotes equitable change in Connecticut housing policy by coordinating advocacy, advancing research, and uniting diverse partners. We are committed to the pursuit of housing justice through system-level change to heal historic and ongoing harms and create truly strong communities across Connecticut.
CAHC content is free and open to all thanks to our generous sponsors.
Recordings of each session of previous years of the CAHC are available on demand on the Partnership's YouTube channel.
Request for Session Proposals
We seek proposals from groups/individuals who are interested in providing timely, engaging, thoughtful sessions which address opportunities for collaborative action around addressing affordable housing issues in Connecticut. Example sessions include:
· spotlight on a policy or program which advances housing justice for low-income households;
· telling the story of the range of housing experiences in Connecticut;
· solutions for reducing regulatory barriers to housing production;
· efforts to improve housing conditions/increase access to healthy affordable housing;
· examples of successful targeting of new/existing resources to address the severe shortage of affordable homes in our state;
· the impacts of affordable housing on health, education, economic mobility, etc. for individuals and communities
We will prioritize session proposals that include both discussion and action around increasing equity. We encourage both those who presented last year as well as new voices to submit proposals.
Session proposals will be formally accepted starting in September, 2023. To discuss session ideas in advance, reach out to Danielle Hubley, Education and Advocacy Manager.
Keynote information will be added once confirmed
Conference agenda will be updated as sessions are confirmed
