and Possibilities for Affordable Housing

SEPTEMBER 24–26, 2023



Hilton Baton Rouge Capitol Center, 201 Lafayette St, Baton Rouge, LA 70801

From Our Executive Director

Joshua G. Hollins

Since taking the helm at the Louisiana Housing Corporation, we have been intentional about creating pathways, developing stronger partnerships, and exploring the possibilities that expand safe, resilient, and affordable housing options across our state. This fall, we are excited to welcome the return of our statewide housing conference, and we invite you to join us for the

Louisiana Housing Conference: Building Pathways, Partnership, and Possibilities for Affordable Housing.

Now more than ever, the need is great for affordable housing options in Louisiana and across our nation, and the LHC is proud to do this work every day. For us, this means bringing together all of our partners in the work from around Louisiana and across the country to make an impact. For three days, more than 500 housing professionals from banking and finance, to developers and policy professionals, will convene in Baton Rouge for a unique opportunity to connect, examine, learn and discuss how to improve the lives of Louisiana residents recognizing housing as the foundation to build strong communities.

We’re happy to launch this effort for the first time since 2019, and we are ready to offer a first-class opportunity for your business to showcase your organization’s commitment to the work of developing affordable housing.
