Housing matters. Access to secure and affordable housing impacts children’s education, employment opportunities, physical and mental health, and long-term neighborhood development.

This innovative day-long conference will present inter-disciplinary new research and case studies from across the U.S. that will inform both policymakers and practitioners. The program will build on the MacArthur Foundation’s five-year, $25 million dollar How Housing Matters initiative, as well as on the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s strategic initiative exploring housing as a platform for education, health and economic opportunity.
