The Future of Rural Communities: Implications for Housing

The Future of Rural Communities: Implications for Housing is a policy forum to be held May 10, 2016 at the Federal Reserve Board’s Martin Building in Washington, D.C. Participants in the forum will explore changing demographic and economic trends that are exacerbating existing housing and community development policy misalignments in rural communities, promising models for addressing community needs resulting from collaboration between policymakers and practitioners, and the unanswered research and policy questions that could contribute to developing evidence-based policy uniquely targeted to the needs of rural communities.

Presentation from HAC’s Research Director Lance George.

The forum will be hosted by the Federal Reserve Board in partnership with the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Rural Development, with critical thought leadership and support provided by NeighborWorks America and the Housing Assistance Council.

While the forum is invite-only, the public will be able to live-stream the event and materials presented will be available for download after the event.
