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.
Presentation materials are organized according to the conference in which they were presented or used as a reference. As a result, some materials can be found under only one conference. We recommend perusing each of the conference links to find information that may be of interest.
If you would like more information about these conferences or if you would like to share a best practice related to CSS sustainability please contact Ms. Dina Lehmann-Kim.
