Corporation for Supportive Housing releases new Public Housing Authority (PHA) toolkit
September 10, 2012
Today the Corporation for Supportive Housing released a new resource for Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) and other stakeholders interested in creating supportive housing in their communities, the PHA Toolkit.
The online toolkit provides the knowledge and know-how, through templates and examples, to advance the efforts of PHAs, regardless of size and Moving to Work status, to establish supportive housing in their communities. Supportive Housing combines affordable housing with services that help people achieve housing stability by addressing their other needs such as employment and health. The toolkit offers a primer on homelessness and supportive housing in addition to showing you how to form solid local partnerships to build a network committed to supportive housing in your own community.
It also explains in detail housing choice vouchers, public housing, project-based vouchers, and unique PHA programs and initiatives that you can utilize based on what your community needs. The toolkit has been developed with the generous support of J.P. Morgan Chase.
