C5: The Housing Authority: Your Best Friend in Housing Homeless Households

Public Housing Authorities are often the most abundant source of affordable housing options. As Continuums of Care look to engage more permanent housing options for precariously housed households, Public Housing Authorities are a natural partner.  Come hear about several Public Housing Authorities and Continuums of Care who have forged strong partnerships in their work to end homelessness in their counties. From learning to understanding each other’s governing restrictions to recognizing opportunities that enhance each other’s missions you will walk away with ideas to enhance your own partnerships in your work to end homelessness.
