Carson City, Nev. – The Nevada Housing Coalition will virtually host its inaugural, statewide summit Oct. 27-29, which will focus on Nevada’s successful and equitable housing recovery. Already strained prior to the pandemic, Nevada’s housing landscape faces significant challenges that require open and candid discussion, engagement across our communities and a united understanding among all stakeholders that affordable housing is for everyone.
Aptly titled “Collaborating for Progress,” the summit will feature special guest speaker Gov. Sisolak and keynote presenter Dr. Tiffany Manuel of TheCaseMade, with remarks from U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto and presenting sponsors Anthem and Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco. Breakout session topics range from preservation and development to rental assistance and homeownership, all led by a host of experts to ensure productive discussion. Proven affordable housing tools and solutions will be explored alongside innovative technology and concepts.
“Housing touches all Nevadans,” said Christine Hess, Nevada Housing Coalition executive director. “We’re at pivotal time during which Nevada’s housing situation is fraught with challenges and yet filled with possibility. The Nevada Housing Coalition coalesced in late 2018, not knowing what awaited our world in 2020. Today, we are taking this opportunity to convene everyone and anyone who touches housing so that we’re successful in not only managing through the pandemic, but also have a solid game plan for the future. Housing must be every Nevadan’s opportunity.”
Who should attend? Front-line community service organizations, local governments, public agencies, educators, healthcare professionals, businesspeople, housing developers, financial institutions, local, state and federal elected officials, and any Nevadan who wants to be a part of Nevada’s housing solutions should register today at NVHousingCoalition.org.
