To mark the 20th Anniversary of the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program, HUD will host a HOME Program conference in Bethesda, Maryland on May 2 – 4, 2011. The conference theme is “Finding a New Way HOME: The Next Twenty Years,” with three tracks of technical workshops and clinics–Envision, Implement and Manage. The conference will provide an opportunity for HUD and grantees to address the challenges we face in the current housing market and fiscal environment. Conference sessions such as, “Placed-Based Strategies” and “Greening Your HOME Program,” will provide grantees with tools and techniques for the design of their future HOME program. Mobile workshops, peer-to-peer discussions and “Ask the Expert” clinics, that will give HOME Program grantees one-on-one technical assistance, will also be offered.
The 20th Anniversary Door Knocker Awards will be announced and exceptional programs and projects highlighted. We also anticipate that the number of HOME-assisted units will hit the one-million mark sometime before the conference!
I look forward to seeing you at the conference as we look ahead to the next 20 years of the HOME program.
