Paperwork Consulting attended the 2023 National Rural Housing Conference from October 24-27, 2023, in Washington D.C. The theme of this year’s event was Build Rural, which emphasized the collaborative effort, leadership, investment, and planning to build just and equitable communities, provoking action to build and revitalize rural communities by addressing a number of factors based upon community inclusion and justice efforts. Affordable housing, community development, and placemaking stakeholders from local nonprofits, federal agencies, Congress, and state and local governments, as well as other industry leaders, came together for workshops regarding sustainable construction, housing rehabilitation and preservation, and more.

Chief Operating Officer Kastan Martin garnered insights from sessions such as:

• Veteran Housing Stakeholder Meeting
• National Summit on Rural Homelessness
• National Rural Housing Coalition Annual Meeting
• Injustice of Place: How the Extremes of Poverty Impacts Housing
• Equitable Policy Making for Rural Affordable Housing
• Pathway to Successful Rural Development: From Needs Assessment to Innovative Solutions
• Rural Housing Futures: A Federal Discussion
• Equity and Disaster Resiliency for Rural Affordable Housing
• Fireside Chat: An Intimate Discussion with Senators Tina Smith & Mike Rounds

It was a true honor to speak with Dr. Kathryn J. Edin about her mission and her newest book The Injustice of Place. It is described as “A powerful, alarming portrayal of how poverty remains entrenched in unfairly forgotten places across America” – Kirkus Reviews.
