Housing Innovation Marketplace
The annual Housing Innovation Marketplace conference brings together more than 400 community leaders and housing partners from across Nebraska and the country to discuss affordable housing and community development. This dynamic conference not only offers educational sessions, networking opportunities with colleagues and great exhibitors, but creates an environment for financial resources, communities and developers to come together to stimulate the creation of affordable housing development in Nebraska.
This year’s conference theme “Hometown HEROES”, encourages you to recognize a HERO who has worked hard to make a difference in the affordable housing community of Nebraska. We encourage all attendees to submit to NIFA a “Hometown HERO” – this would include a brief description (150 words or less) of what makes this person a HERO and a photo of them or a project they have been a part of prior to the conference through either our Facebook (NIFAHousing) or Twitter (@NIFAHousing) using the #NEHometownHero. If you would prefer you can email your Hometown HERO submission to firstname.lastname@example.org
Attendees submitting a “Hometown HERO” will receive a discount of $25 on their conference registration fee. Just let us know at the time of registration if you will post your “Hometown HERO” on our social media pages or email the information. Join us and celebrate our hometown HEROES!
