The National Housing Law Project, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, and Public Counsel will conduct a webinar about how to encourage local public housing agencies (PHAs) to spend their FY14 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) allocations. “Picking up the Pieces of the Sequester: Local Advocacy Efforts to Encourage PHAs to Start Spending in 2014” will provide advocates with the tools they need to promote improved PHA policies in a post-sequester landscape.
Specifically, the webinar will:
- Discuss FY14 funding levels for the HCV program and explain initiatives to restore in FY15 all of the vouchers lost due to sequestration.
- Describe strategies to convince local PHAs to spend HCV resources now, and to reverse harmful policy decisions aimed at cutting spending due to sequestration, including revising local subsidy standards and reducing payment standards.
- Train advocates to effectively engage local PHAs and HUD on these critical issues.
The webinar will be held on Tuesday, April 22 at 2:00 pm ET. Register for the webinar at: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/6030307064541463810
