Save the Date: January 23-24, 2018 

The 2018 Prosperity Indiana Summit and Statehouse Day will be held January 23-24, 2018, at the Sheraton Indianapolis City Center Hotel. The focus of this annual gathering of Prosperity Indiana’s members and partners will be the intersection of community health and community development.

Strengthening our communities requires us to consider the ways that people and their environment interact with one another. The health of one is intricately intertwined with the health of the other. Conditions in the places where people live, learn, work, and play affect a wide range of health risks and outcomes. These conditions are known as social determinants of health.

Agenda January 23, 2018

Event takes place on site at the Indiana Statehouse, 200 East Washington Street, Indianapolis, Indiana.

Prosperity Indiana’s 2018 Statehouse Day is called Prosperity IN Action because the strength of our advocacy lies within our members and partners coming together to advocate for policies that support Hoosier communities. 

Join us at the Indiana Statehouse as we urge lawmakers to act on critical policy priorities in support of community development efforts statewide, including clarifying affordable housing property tax exemption, defending key programs in the budget, protecting consumers, and strengthening asset building opportunities for low-income Hoosier families.

Please register and let us know if you are interested in attending any legislative meetings, are interested in only attending the reception, or are interested in attending the entire event which will be held in the 3rd floor South Atrium from 1:00-4:00 p.m. (EST).

"There is an entire industry—community development—with annual resources in the tens of billions of dollars that is in the ‘ZIP-code improving’ business. And in the health field, there is increasing recognition of the need to act on the social determinants of health. The time to merge these two approaches—improving health by addressing its social determinants and revitalizing low-income neighborhoods—is now.” David Erickson
