We're thrilled to announce that registration is now open for the 2023 Permanent Supportive Housing Symposium to be held November 6-7 at the Renaissance Austin Hotel. 

The 1.5 day Symposium will provide a platform for developers, property managers, service providers, health professionals, homelessness response organizations, and others to share best practices, collaborate, and gain insight into how to work together to move families and individuals out of housing instability and into permanent, service-enriched housing.

Symposium Add-Ons

To supplement the Symposium content, we're also offering a tour of three supportive housing developments on the morning of Monday, November 6th and a Supportive Housing Academy conducted by the Corporation for Supportive Housing on Wednesday, November 8th. 

Hotel Accommodations

If you need hotel accommodations, please book here to receive the conference rate. The room block also includes a limited number of rooms on Tuesday night for attendees participating in the post-Symposium Academy on Wednesday, November 8th. Note: the hotel rate reflects the prevailing government per diem rate at the time of reservation and may be subject to change if the per diem rate changes. 


We invite you to check out the preliminary agenda that will be finalized in the coming weeks. There are three tracks that speak to the varied interests of attendees: (1) housing development, (2) operations and supportive services and (3) health outcomes. Additionally, there will be a networking reception and three plenary sessions highlighting the perspective of authority figures on supportive housing. 

featured plenary speaker - Dr. Gregg Colburn

Our featured plenary speaker is Dr. Gregg Colburn, a professor of real estate at the University of Washington’s College of Built Environments. Gregg is a member of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Family Homelessness Evaluation Committee and co-chair of the University of Washington’s Homelessness Research Initiative.

He recently published the book Homelessness is a Housing Problem, which makes the data-supported case that housing market conditions, such as the cost and availability of rental housing, drive the prevalence of homelessness within a community.
