Call for


2024 Nevada Housing Conference

October 16 & 17 | Nugget Casino Report in Sparks, NV

Theme: Digging In

With Nevada’s recent momentum, our state has become a bustling construction site, with attention and resources pouring in to drive progress and accelerate development pipelines. But now, it’s time to dig deeper. We need to excavate beneath the surface, examining processes with a critical eye, and unearth long-term resources to sustain our growth. We’re not just laying foundations; we’re building a blueprint for the future. So, let’s don those hard hats and roll up our sleeves. It’s time to get in the trenches together this October to construct a better future for our state.

The Nevada Housing Coalition is releasing a Call for Proposals for the 2024 Nevada Housing Conference. We invite NHC Members and stakeholders, from contractors to policymakers, to architects and community leaders, to submit their ideas for consideration. This year, under the theme “Digging In,” we are seeking innovative and interactive formats, best practices, and diverse perspectives focusing on addressing Nevada’s most pressing inventory gaps. We are looking for submissions that showcase innovative development strategies, effective systems coordination and partnerships, intersectional housing issues and programs, and actionable strategies to sustainably advance and preserve housing supply across Nevada.

Some broad examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Equity-centered policy strategy, solutions, and investments at the local, regional, state, or federal level to produce and preserve affordable homes.
  • Development, entitlement, construction, preservation, and sustainable design best practices, changes, and innovations.
  • The latest changes, innovations, and best practices for local, state, federal, and other funding and financing programs for rental and ownership housing.
  • Integrated community development approaches that provide multiple benefits to communities.
  • Efforts to center the experiences of those most impacted by the affordable housing and homelessness crisis, especially through evidence-based community development strategies and purpose-built supportive housing projects.
  • Data-driven practices, the latest changes, innovations, research, and cross-sector partnerships to inform our work producing and preserving affordable homes.
  • Building cross-sector solidarity to support long term transformative change.
