Grounded Solutions at RVP
The Center for Community Progress is proud to announce that Grounded Solutions Network will be a featured Partner for the 2019 Reclaiming Vacant Properties (RVP) Conference in Atlanta, Georgia.
Grounded Solutions’ participation in RVP will serve in place of the annual Intersections conference. Intersections will return in 2020 and will take place in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Along with a dedicated slate of various session topics appealing to shared equity housing leaders and other RVP attendees, additional offerings in Atlanta include a special extended summit meeting focused on envisioning the next 50 years of Community Land Trust progress. Grounded Solutions encourages all its member practitioners, stakeholders and strategic partners to take advantage of this special opportunity, culminating with an October 4-5 overnight excursion to Albany, Georgia, for a historic 50th Anniversary celebration of New Communities, Inc. – the very first Community Land Trust formed as part of the American Civil Rights Movement.
Hosted by the Center for Community Progress since 2010, RVP is designed to strengthen communities through strategies that transform vacant, abandoned, and deteriorated properties into community assets.
Under the conference theme of Equity First: Revitalizing Communities Together, registration for the Atlanta conference will open in the coming months – with access to a supplemental sign-up form for the Albany celebration – and both Grounded Solutions and the Center for Community Progress will share updates with additional details in the immediate future.
