Capitol Hill Forum - Measuring Opportunity: the Complementary Roles of Policy, Practice, and Data in Advancing Equity and Mobility

The Capitol Hill Forum will explore how placemakers, policy experts, and major institutions are using social and economic data to benefit low-income people and places. Emerging data and tools, such as the Opportunity Atlas, present significant opportunities to attract new resources into the community development field from non-traditional sources, but data comes with limitations and potential pitfalls. The Forum will explore what existing empirical evidence tells us about the efficacy of current legislative proposals relating to housing and economic mobility. Come learn about the implications for future resources, strategies, and outcomes for the communities you serve. The Capitol Hill Forum is a complimentary event, which is not included with the conference fee.
