The City of Memphis will host the inaugural State of Memphis Housing Summit on October 29 at the Memphis Botanic Garden from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. The Summit is being coordinated by the City of Memphis Division of Housing and Community Development in partnership with Kresge Foundation, Tennessee Housing Development Agency, Plough Foundation, Hyde Foundation, Neighborhood Preservation Inc., BLDG Memphis, and many more.

The theme for this year’s conference is “From Momentum to Opportunity."

Sessions for the event include: Impacts of Absentee Owners on Memphis Neighborhoods, Housing & Health Partnerships for Change, and Data for a Changing Memphis, just to name a few.

As the City continues its mission of providing affordable housing and community revitalization through the several projects currently underway, the summit serves as an opportunity to build cohesive synergy around housing strategies that add value to our communities.

The summit will include remarks from City of Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland, Shelby County Mayor Lee Harris, and Director of Housing and Community Development, Paul A. Young. In addition, there will be a host of local and national experts who will provide data and context for how to address specific housing challenges in the Memphis region. The audience will include neighborhood and civic leaders, as well as representatives from government, business, and philanthropic sectors.
