Speakers will discuss an energy-efficient manufactured housing initiative; a unique program combining capital preservation of multifamily housing with health services for seniors to promote aging in place; a home repair program that dramatically reduces utility costs for residents in Appalachia; and a Promise Zone that is combining housing and infrastructure funding in new ways to support much needed housing development on tribal lands.
