Partners in Innovation National Symposium and Policy Forum
Reconnecting America will be participating in the two-day Partners in Innovation National Symposium in Denver. The symposium will examine the challenges and opportunities for developing and sustaining Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) that includes housing opportunities affordable to working families and families with low- and moderate-incomes and also explore the connection between rental housing preservation and transit. Reconnecting America Chief of Staff Allison Brooks will moderate a panel discussion of the success of Portland and the Bay Area in developing TOD affordable to families across a range of incomes. She will also moderate a discussion of Public Agencies, Partnerships and Preserving Affordability. Reconnecting America's Program Director Catherine Cox Blair will participate in a panel discussion of Interagency Coordination at the State and Local Level. She will also moderate a panel discussion of the Developers Perspective: Green Affordable Housing. Reconnecting America Policy Associate Sasha Forbes will participate in a panel discussion of Data Tools to Support Housing and TOD Decision-Making. More information on the symposium can be found here.
