2018 Reinventing Our Communities Conference in Baltimore

Join us for the 2018 Reinventing Our Communities: Investing in Opportunity conference, conveningOctober 1–3, 2018, at the Hilton Baltimore. At the heart of our community development mission is the goal of helping neighborhoods and individuals to reach their full potential and to share in the vitality of the U.S. economy. Investing in opportunity requires building and mobilizing four types of capital as a means to promote economic mobility: financial, human, physical and social capital. This conference will focus on all four.
