HUD has launched Innovation of the Day, an online platform designed to collect and share affordable housing, community development and urban planning ideas, and other housing-related solutions. According to HUD, the new platform will consist of a submission form and innovations database for use by anyone, ranging from the general public to researchers. The site will feature select innovations highlighting some of best innovations HUD receives from both U.S. and international entities. The site will also include a dashboard to reveal trends such as geography or innovation theme. This winter, HUD will expand on this endeavor by hosting its first Innovation Summit to bring together policymakers, nonprofit organizations and practitioners to share ideas and to stimulate policy development at all levels.
