2018 Governor's Conference on Housing and Economic Development

Join us for the 2018 Governor's Conference on Housing and Economic Development

It's an exciting time in New Jersey as we strive for innovative approaches to affordable housing, job creation, and building a stronger and fairer economy.

This year’s Governor’s Conference on Housing and Economic Development will build on those themes, spurring new ideas, stimulating discussion and thought-provoking solutions as we move ahead to create a strong future for New Jersey. As always, the conference draws key leaders from across the state in business and government, housing and economic development, and nonprofits sharing their insights and perspectives.

The conference, now in its 22nd year, takes place October 2-3 and is hosted by the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency and the New Jersey Economic Development Authority. This year’s conference will offer a cutting-edge program, engaging trade and industry exhibitors, and a new permanent logo that brands the conference as the state’s premier housing and economic development forum.

This year will be transformative in New Jersey, and the conference is an exciting opportunity to be part of the key discussions and developments happening across our state.

NEW THIS YEAR! The conference kicks off with a Hall of Fame Reception at which a 2018 Housing and Economic Development Hall of Fame Award will be presented.


We’re looking forward to a great turnout!
