2017 Indiana Housing Conference

Registration remains open for the 2017 Indiana Housing Conference, which will take place August 15-16, 2017. This year's conference features Karen and Mina from HGTV's Good Bones.

This year's HOME track focuses on the PJ perspective and is intended to help local PJs better understand HOME requirements and learn about best practices that can proactively address their concerns.  While coming from a PJ perspective, these sessions also benefit CHDOs, subrecipients, and other program participants by providing context – the why behind the what – for their changing experience in HOME as PJs adapt to HUD’s constantly evolving requirements.
