HUD’s 2023 Innovative Housing Showcase – Technical Sessions

HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research

Please join us for HUD’s 2023 Innovative Housing Showcase! Hosted by HUD and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the Showcase is an open-to-the-public event on the National Mall to raise awareness of innovative and affordable housing designs and technologies that have the potential to increase housing supply, lower the cost of construction, increase energy efficiency and resilience, and reduce housing expenses for owners and renters. Policymakers, housing industry representatives, media, and the general public are invited to attend.

To complement the Showcase, HUD will live stream several technical sessions on June 8 and 9 from the National Building Museum.

June 8, 9:00-11:30 am ET – Energy Efficiency, Resilience, and Decarbonization
