HUD’s Office of Native American Programs (ONAP) is pleased to announce our Crime Prevention Summit which will take place February 4-6, 2020 at The Westin Downtown Denver located in Denver, Colorado. HUD ONAP has a responsibility to the American Indian and Alaska Native housing communities to provide a forum for training and consultation. Under NAHASDA, grant recipients have a greater responsibility for developing, implementing and sustaining effective affordable housing programs. In addition, when large numbers of Native American housing providers gather, there is an opportunity to discuss successes and concerns and develop strong, positive working relationships.
The Crime Prevention Summit will offer a forum for tribal leaders and federal agencies to discuss methamphetamine prevalence, opioid addiction, violence against women, and gang violence. Discussion of these topics will aid tribal leaders to come up with unified efforts for their community to combat these crimes. Participants will learn about how these topics affect housing and the greater tribal community. Information on available funding sources and ideas for implementing policies to prevent and address these crimes will be shared. Tribal leaders, housing department executives, housing authority leaders, and interested tribal community members are encouraged to participate in this event. This summit will fill up quickly, so please be sure to register and make your hotel reservations as soon as possible.
