2008 Community & Supportive Services Sustainability Conferences


In 2008, HUD's Office of Public Housing Investments (OPHI) held four regional CSS Sustainability conferences for its HOPE VI Revitalization grantees. The conferences took place in Raleigh, NC; Seattle, WA; St. Louis, MO; and Boston, MA.

The primary purpose of the sustainability conferences was to provide an opportunity for grantees to learn helpful strategies and share best practices/lessons learned on sustainability in HOPE VI revitalization efforts.

Each conference was designed in consultation with an advisory group composed of CSS staff from housing authorities within each of the four regions. While each conference reflected regional circumstances and presented a mix of grantees and experiences, all conferences provided attendees with information and tools to help make their CSS programs sustainable.
