If you have not done so yet, we encourage you to now cancel any existing airfare/transportation and hotel reservations related to the Summit. Airline policies vary, but many airlines appear to be more flexible than usual given the circumstances. You may use this email as justification to any airline about canceling an existing reservation. If you had a reservation at our official Summit hotel/venue, the Washington Marriott Georgetown, your hotel reservation was automatically cancelled and you should have received a cancellation notice from the hotel.

The Housing Is Team
The Housing Is Summit is made possible with generous support from the Funders for Housing and Opportunity.
This year, we are pleased to offer four breakout session tracks to allow attendees to focus on one track or learn from a variety of perspectives by creating a custom schedule. All breakout sessions are scheduled to be 75 minutes each to allow for both insightful presentations and substantive discussion.
- Partnership Development
- Housing Is Education
- Housing is Health
- Peer Learning and Networking -- new!
Included in each of these tracks will be sessions with particular emphasis on themes such as data sharing/collaboration, in-depth case study analysis, and workshops on current policies.

The Housing Is Initiative, led by the Council of Large Public Housing Authorities, helps build a future where systems work together to improve life outcomes.
Fragmented service delivery systems and sioed policymaking often fail to address the needs of low-income individuals and families holistically, resulting in stagnant outcomes and costly inefficiencies. CLPHA’s Housing Is Initiative is based on the premise that systems can better meet these needs and improve life outcomes when they work together.
