State public housing is a vital resource, providing homes to thousands of the state’s economically vulnerable households. With a 10-Year Capital Plan now available, public housing authorities are faced with new funding, development and management challenges. At the same time, new legislation provides public housing residents a prominent seat at the table in the redevelopment process.
Join the Partnership for Strong Communities for a lively discussion looking at how housing authorities, public housing residents, technical assistance providers and funding agencies are using the redevelopment process as an opportunity to sustain a valuable resource while building inclusive and sustainable communities. Two panel discussions will look at how funding and technical assistance are being deployed, share first-hand accounts of the benefits and challenges of redevelopment, as well as insights and lessons learned.
