Housing Mobility Training Institute

There’s nothing else like it: Gain new colleagues and foundational skills in housing mobility!

The Housing Mobility Training Institute is designed for staff that are new to housing mobility, to build connections and skills that will equip and empower them to contribute to a successful mobility program. Offered annually, the Institute features instruction from program practitioners, participants, and landlord partners, as well as researchers and advocates. In the first two years of the Institute, we have trained individuals and teams representing nearly 40 organizations and agencies across the country.

The Institute is interactive and focuses on foundational topics, such as trauma-informed pre- and post-move services; mobility-oriented Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) administration; landlord outreach, recruitment, and retention; participant leadership; and the historical and policy context of housing mobility. If you are working toward creating a housing mobility program, or if your organization already has a program but has brought on staff that has never before attended the Institute, this opportunity is for you or your team members.

Housing Mobility Network members receive a 20% discount on registration, which includes meals and a celebratory reception. The 2024 Institute will be held on October 7th in Boston! This page will be updated with the agenda and registration details as soon as they are available.

Feedback from past Institute trainees:

“I just wanted to express how insightful the training was. I have 55 pages of smartphone notes that I’m currently typing up to a usable format for my new hire.”


“I really appreciated being in a space with others who spoke the same language and were on the same page about housing mobility.”

“Interactive, great content, real life stories from mobility participants!”
