Housing Strategies in a Challenging Economy

The Montana Housing Conference is scheduled for June 26 through June 28, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza in Billings, Montana.  The conference, which is held every other year, features speakers from the National Association of Homebuilders, the Corporation for Enterprise Development, and the new Federal Consumer Finance Protection Bureau, covering a myriad of topics from homelessness to homeownership.  Registration for the conference is $175 until June 15, when a late registration charge takes effect.   Single  day registrations are also available.

Conference organizer Sheila Rice, Executive Director of NeighborWorks, said, “the conference promises to be three days packed with information about housing, with great topics on creating security and opportunity with decent housing, fighting homelessness, housing resources and the impact of foreclosures in Montana.  A special panel on Wednesday, June 27 will feature Oil and Gas Impacts on Eastern Montana Communities.   Success stories from Indian housing, Neighborhood Stabilization Program, and owner-built housing will also be featured.”
