The Reclaiming Vacant Properties conference will be held June 20–22 in New Orleans. The Center for Community Progress and various cosponsors will host the event. Educational sessions will focus on the challenges and opportunities of foreclosed, abandoned, and blighted properties in the context of the economic recovery and reinvention of the country's cities and towns.

The conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans. The Hyatt is reopening this year for the first time since it was damaged by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
