MTW agencies are able to create innovative solutions to local problems. This session will provide a brief overview of what we know about MTW agency innovations and their impact as well as real-life advice from an MTW agency. The session will also discuss best practices gleaned from MTW participation and how agencies can prepare to apply for the upcoming MTW expansion. Participants should come away from the session understanding the latest research findings and best practices for MTW agencies and what that might mean for their agency.
The Housing Conference, presented by NMA, will spotlight three tracks: an executive track, a regulatory track, and a best practices track. Go here to view a list of the session descriptions that have been published so far.
