Working With Public Housing Agencies
Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) administer powerful resources for very vulnerable populations, making them critical partners for supportive housing and ending homelessness. PHAs choose to pursue supportive housing for a variety of reasons:
Mission: Supportive housing complements PHA's missions of providing affordable housing opportunities.
Funding: Many PHAs can leverage supportive housing or other affordable housing financing opportunities to fund efforts to house the very vulnerable.
Partnerships: Innovative partnerships have allowed PHAs to house people who struggle to succeed in traditional programs.
Over the last two years, CSH has increased our work with PHAs to 1) Reform and improve federal policy, 2) Convene PHAs across the country to share knowledge and best practices, 3) Provide in-person and on-demand technical assistance to PHAs and 4) Strengthen partnerships with key trade associations and their members.
CSH staff are presenting at meetings and conferences around the county to increase interest and engagement in supportive housing solutions among PHAs. Other work and materials include:
