Since 2007, more than 12,000 urban, suburban, and rural leaders have gathered to make the Reclaiming Vacant Properties Conference (RVP), one of the most successful national conferences in community development. From nonprofits and government to business and resident-led efforts, concerned leaders committed to strengthening their communities from diverse disciplines, gather to answer one central question: How can we effect real, on the ground change? What can we do to strengthen our communities today?

RVP explores the latest strategies for addressing vacant, abandoned, and deteriorated properties by providing space to showcase innovation and forums for nurturing new ideas. Through uniting leaders with common challenges, we work to equip every community with the tools to effect real, on-the-ground change.
