Collaboration works – housing conference

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This morning was the third in a series of conferences on housing in CT, but with a twist. The organizers emphasized the need to collaborate across issue areas – to include people who care about transportation, education, workforce, the economy, government, the environment, and health care. The conference was a collaborative effort of non-profits with government. They brought in speakers to talk about model programs in other states like Louisiana, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas (yes, Texas). They brought useful ideas that could be adopted here to improve on the housing successes CT has already achieved through collaboration. There was a lot of very productive talk about breaking down silos around housing. I left wishing we could do the same for health care in CT.
