Watch HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan Speak at CNU 18 For Free

We know you've been waiting eagerly for another free webcast featuring a highlight from CNU 18, so here you go. This month's flick captures an unforgettable moment in recent CNU history -- this summer's impressive speech by Shaun Donovan, the 15th U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

Building on the visionary leadership he provided in overseeing a housing sector ravaged by market shock, Donovan brought to the Congress an important and welcome message about the elimination of government silos and the removal of policy barriers in order to make neighborhoods more walkable, connected and diverse -- all at a tremendous value to the economy. Listen as he discusses CNU's role in planning reforms that are influencing federal policy and as he makes news by reporting that criteria from the LEED for Neighborhood rating system (created through a partnership of CNU, NRDC and USGBC) will be used in all future HUD grant application reviews.
