About Connecticut's Affordable Housing Conference
Dates: November 15-17, 2021
Location: Virtual

Partnership for Strong Communities (PSC) will host Connecticut’s second annual Affordable Housing Conference (CAHC) virtually across November 15, 16 and 17, 2021. PSC organized last year’s inaugural Affordable Housing Conference: Tipping Point to offer a virtual multi-day event featuring conversations that explore challenges, share best practices, and coalesce us around critical next steps to address key affordable housing issues in our state.

Connecticut’s Affordable Housing Conference: Roadmap to Recovery will focus on how our state can leverage existing and new capital, and drive affordable housing policy and programmatic changes that support both equitable short-term and long-term recovery. The CAHC will feature a menu of sessions relevant to affordable housing developers, tenants and tenant advocates, lenders and funders, public housing authorities, municipal and state policy leaders, housing advocates and partners. The 3-day conference will also include small and informal discussion-based gatherings, aimed at building networks and sharing ideas. We are grateful to our sponsors who help us keep the conference affordable for all to attend.

PSC is seeking proposals from groups/individuals who are interested in providing timely, engaging, and thoughtful sessions which address opportunities for action around addressing affordable housing issues in Connecticut. We encourage both those who have previously presented at Tipping Point as well as new voices to submit proposals.

This year the conference will prioritize session proposals that include consideration of racial equity in their presentation. Low-income, Black, Indigenous, and Latinx Connecticut households and communities experience housing instability, and inadequate and unsafe housing conditions at disproportionately high levels. These issues have been exacerbated by the global pandemic, and by the deep racial inequity which pervades our housing, healthcare, education, justice, and economic systems.
Proposal Guidelines
• Proposals must include actionable solutions/next steps shared with the audience
• Proposals must include discussion on the racial inequity considerations of the proposed topic
• Proposals should include racially diverse panels/presenters
• Proposals should include details/ideas on how the session will be interactive and encourage participation
• Proposals that utilize current/recent data are encouraged
• Proposals that include multiple partners are encouraged
• Proposals led by or including individuals with lived expertise of housing instability will be given special consideration
