Philadelphia Regional Housing Campaign

Kickoff conference for regional mobility program – January 9, 2014!

On behalf of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, our partners and our stakeholders, I'd like to invite you to attend the Moving to Higher Opportunity Summit: Exploring Options and Opportunities for Housing Mobility, a free event for those interested in housing mobility issues. Housing mobility provides low-income individuals and families with access to better housing and education, increases employment opportunities, and leads to improvements in overall quality of life and health-related outcomes.

This day-long session is designed to raise awareness of the advantages of housing mobility and the implications to subsidized housing programs, and to help create a shared understanding of local impediments to affordable housing in higher opportunity areas. Our special guests will include HUD's Deputy Secretary Maurice Jones, who will provide the keynote address.

We hope to attract individuals in the housing and community development industry including local elected and appointed governmental officials, faith-based leaders, metropolitan and community development planning organizations, fair housing and civil rights organizations and those involved in the delivery of assisted housing. Whether you are in housing or community development, work for a nonprofit or for-profit, are involved in education or engage in philanthropy; there's something here for you.
