Harley University Center, 1 South Avenue, Garden City, NY. Sharan London, vice president of ICF International will be the keynote speaker. Since 1969, ICF has been serving government at all levels, major corporations, and multilateral institutions.

    This conference will be broken down into four major sessions:

    Session One: Veterans Housing Programs-Changing Landscape

    Session Two: Creating Meaningful Veterans Housing on Long Island

    Session Three: Case Studies

    Session Four: Funding, Finance-Making It Happen

    A variety of aspects surrounding veteran's housing will be tackled including completed and pending projects in the pipeline, current housing service programs and looking towards the future for more permanent housing options. The program is multi-faceted and will target both older veterans and veterans recently returning to the U.S., as well as options for military spouses. This event addresses the needs of not only veterans but also veteran service providers, developers, builders, real estate professionals, financiers and government personnel. "Our ultimate goal with this conference is to impart knowledge and to exchange in a dialogue within the community about shortages of opportunities for veterans," says Jasleen Anand a consultant at Capacity Green.
