National Housing Mobility Conference October 21-22 In Washington D.C.

The first national conference on Housing Mobility As an Anti- Poverty Strategy will be held October 21-22 in Washington, D. C.

The conference will provide an in-depth examination of housing mobility programs. Mobility programs expand the range of residential options available to low income families living in inner cities. Research has proven that housing mobility programs improve the life opportunities of low income families and promote socioeconomic and racial integration. Findings of a new study, commissioned by the conference, will be presented. HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros will give the keynote address.

The conference is hosted by the Leadership Conference Education Fund, and funded by the Ford Foundation. Make hotel reservations by September 20 at the Hyatt Regency Washington, 202/737-1234. Conference registration is due by October 10.
