BPC Virtual Forum: Mayors and Experts on Ending Homelessness

This event has passed.

Local officials are at the forefront of responding to these intertwined issues.

In this virtual forum, BPC will convene mayors and homelessness policy experts to engage in a candid dialogue about the scale of the problem nationwide, share insights into innovative policy approaches, and discuss how the federal government can be an effective partner to cities working to prevent and end homelessness.
