The NLC Healthy Housing team, in partnership with the National Center for Healthy Housing (NCHH), is inviting cities, towns, and villages to attend a Data Symposium aimed at enhancing healthy housing service delivery at the municipal level. The event will bring together practitioners, municipal leaders, and data and technology providers and will feature presentations, panels, and facilitated networking and discussion opportunities.

Join us to learn about existing solutions and innovations to improve local service delivery for healthy housing programs, and to help NLC better understand the challenges your community is facing.  

Following the Symposium, cities, towns and villages will be invited to participate in a Request for Proposals for a 15-month Healthy Housing Innovation Cohort. Up to 8 municipalities will be selected to collaborate with the NLC Healthy Housing team and partners to streamline and enhance existing systems, or to ideate and prototype new ones. More details to come!

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn from other cities about their data systems and tools
  • See examples of existing platforms for improved services delivery
  • Consider how these solutions could be implemented in your community, so you’re ready to respond to the upcoming RFP and join a learning community
