CHT Staff Present at Grounded Solutions Network Conference

Champlain Housing Trust staff traveled to Washington, D.C., for the Grounded Solutions Network Conference. The two-day conference with more than 400 attendees focused on how to continue to make our cities and regions more equitable and inclusive through innovative housing policies, thoughtful housing programs, foundational organizing and community-led solutions.

CHT’s Director of Home Ownership Julie Curtin presented on a panel titled Innovations for Scale and CEO Michael Monte moderated a panel called Financing Housing with Lasting Affordability: Lessons Learned, Innovations, and Future Directions.

Grounded Solutions Network is made up of members from all over the country who share their knowledge and build connections in order to advance a national movement for equitable communities.  Collectively, the Network is committed to advancing racial equity, recognizing and addressing past and current disparities in access to quality housing for families of color. Grounded Solutions members are actively engaged in supporting and implementing policies and programs that ensure that housing— both rental and homeownership—remains affordable over the long-term.

This conference is the only national event dedicated to racially equitable housing solutions with affordability that lasts for generations.
