HUD Sustainable Communities Convening

HUD is gathering all of the grantees from its Sustainable Communities grant program for a three-day convening in Washington, DC, to share lessons learned, spotlight success stories and receive feedback on grant activities to date. As a Capacity Building grantee, Reconnecting America staff Catherine Cox Blair, Abby Thorne-Lyman, Chris Yake and Sasha Forbes will be attending and presenting on implementation tools and strategies for creating more livable and sustainable communities in the grantee regions. These presentations will include sessions on affordable housing tools to prevent displacement and using typologies in corridor and regional planning.
