|The National Housing Conference and Center for Housing Policy are beginning a new project and are seeking your help and input. We are examining the extent to which changes in HUD regulations or guidance, or other HUD actions, could advance the following objectives:
Our goal is to identify specific changes that could help make a difference by tapping the expertise and experiences of the Forum membership.
