The 2014 Neighborhood Revitalization Conference is a week away! There is still time to register – be sure to do so online by Monday, July 21. Hosted by the Center for the Study of Social Policy and the Alliance for Children and Families, the 2014 conference will take place July 24-25 in Washington, DC.

This year’s conference is full of sessions designed to address some of the most complex challenges in place-based revitalization. Join fellow practitioners, policymakers, private sector leaders and funders to network and explore together how to tackle the most pressing concerns in our communities.

On Thursday, July 24th, participants will have the opportunity to hear from federal and philanthropic partners in the opening plenary: Federal and Philanthropic Investments to Catalyze Sustainable Local Efforts. This session will focus on federal and philanthropic efforts designed to support neighborhood revitalization and will include discussions about how to link national and local efforts, as well as how to use a results-driven approach focused on sustainability. Panelists will include:

Throughout the conference, participants will have the opportunity to explore a number of issues and initiatives, including the federal Promise Zones initiative, as well as how communities can promote the healthy development and well-being of children and families living in our nation’s most distressed neighborhoods.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2014 Neighborhood Revitalization Conference!
