- Collect information from community members, possibly by attending community group meetings.
- Facilitate the Community Review Board.
- Manage the Special Edition of the Trumpet.
- Organize strategic community outreach and a Housing Summit.
- Handle the launch event for HousingNOLA and media throughout the process.
- Select members of the community to add to the Leadership Board.

This is one of three Working Groups in the HousingNOLA process. The first meeting was held on December 3, 2014 and the co-chairs, one resident and one practitioner, were selected by the group at the second meeting on January 7, 2015. The Community Engagement Working Group is made up of a diverse array of individuals who are actively gathering input from their communities on the desired future of housing in New Orleans.
