Efforts to Increase the Housing Choice Voucher Program (April 24, 2014)

CSH hosted a webinar to discuss a national effort to increase funding for the Housing Choice Voucher program. The Housing Choice Voucher program (HCV) is the largest rental assistance program that helps extremely-low and low-income households gain access to safe, affordable housing. Vouchers enable families to access private housing that fit their needs and allows Public Housing Authorities to create supportive housing units targeting vulnerable populations in the local community.

This panelists discussed the impact of current and future funding levels on supportive housing development and efforts being taken to increase funding for the HCV program and provided examples of supportive housing projects currently using vouchers.
