As an all-encompassing housing conference, CONNECTIONS will cover an array of topics designed to put housing first. The conference will kickoff on April 2 at the Hilton Convention Center in Downtown Baton Rouge with the HousingFirst Roundtables. On day two we will conduct a series of concurrent breakout sessions as part of our 6 track housing series. Finally, to bring it all together we will then convene one last time on April 4, for an open dialogue of what we’ve learned at the Community Connections panel.

We invite you to begin by joining us at the Louisiana Housing Corporation Board Meeting, which is open to the public. The LHC Board of Directors will meet handle the business of the Corporation and discuss the status of housing around the state.
It’s time to talk about what really works in affordable housing. The HousingFirst Roundtable is purposefully designed to mix up and connect thought leaders from varied disciplines to share information about barriers, examine resources, and talk about holistic community-driven affordable housing solutions.
For communities to be successful, affordable housing is not just about putting a roof over someone’s head; rather, it is about providing holistic approaches that are inclusive to education, health, jobs, and transportation opportunities.
The HousingFirst Roundtable will provide a unique opportunity to network, collaborate, and understand what resources are available and how to access them.
Ultimately, our goal is to help you discover new resources, build connections that result in new partnerships and either build off of housing models that work or develop new innovative housing solutions.
Our hope is that you meet someone new, learn about a funding source that you’ve never heard about, begin conversations about pairing resources, and talk about ways we can better serve the citizens of Louisiana.
For two days, we’ve have the opportunity to explore how we can improve the state of housing as an individual and from a regional perspective. Now it’s time for an open dialogue about what we’ve learned, to share thoughts and ideas, and ask the tough questions about improving affordable housing in the State of Louisiana.
Led by a panel of industry experts, Community Connections will provide the back drop for a rich dialogue about housing policy, strategic initiatives, and economic development. This is your time to hear from industry insiders, ask questions and learn best practices.
