Access to secure and affordable housing impacts children's education, employment opportunities, physical and mental health, and long-term neighborhood development. The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation in partnership with the National Building Museum and the Office of Policy Development & Research at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development invite you to a day-long conference on How Housing Matters.

This innovative day-long conference will present new, inter-disciplinary research and case studies from across the U.S. to inform policymakers and practitioners working to improve quality of life and opportunity for families and in communities. 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.

The conference is free. Advance Registration Required. Walk in registration based on availability.
