Keynote: Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR)
Rep. Bonamici discusses her CLPHA-endorsed Build Housing with Care Act, a bill she recently introduced that would make childcare more accessible to people who live in affordable housing. The Build Housing with Care Act advances our shared goal of co-locating childcare centers at affordable housing areas to vastly improve access to housing and childcare for low-income families. Rep. Bonamici's remarks continue our long-standing Summit discussions about how affordable, convenient childcare in low-income housing communities can increase families' access to early childhood education, economic opportunities, housing stability, and other resources that can improve their life outcomes.

Plenary: Enhancing Federal Data Sharing to Improve Programming for Low-Income Families
CLPHA has long championed data sharing among organizations from local service providers to federal government agencies. We believe that taking a collaborative approach to utilizing data gathered from the programs we operate and people we provide services to is critical to helping entities who serve low-income families to identify overlap in assisted populations, establish shared goals, and determine if interventions intended to improve life outcomes are working. While challenges such as privacy concerns, siloed systems, and communication barriers among partners can make this work difficult, sharing data can streamline duplicative interventions, reduce costs and inefficiencies, and lead to expanded access to social services for the people that need them most.
