Federal legislation passed in Washington DC profoundly impacts efforts here in Massachusetts to achieve the goal of everyone having a safe, affordable, and accessible place to call home in the community they choose.  

Join CHAPA on Friday, May 3, at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston for our CHAPA's Annual Federal Forum to discuss the national political outlook, pending legislation that will impact housing policy, and initiatives implemented by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Panelists will discuss what to expect over the next year on the state and federal levels and highlight opportunities to weigh in.

Please arrive at 9:00 AM to check in at registration and enjoy a light breakfast. The program will begin promptly at 9:30 AM.
