How and where we are housed are two of the most important factors behind many of life’s outcomes. Research shows that access to stable, affordable housing significantly impacts economic stability, employment, overall health, and educational achievement. This training will provide an overview of the affordable housing types that are available in most Counties and provide an overview of the eligibility criteria for each type as well as provide an overview of Compass Health’s housing program.
Participants will learn about:
- Who needs affordable housing
- Types of affordable housing
- Funding for affordable housing rents
- Affordable housing for households with special needs
- How it all fits together
- Avenues to locate and access affordable housing
