Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) can be a key partner in the creation of permanent supportive housing. Presenters will describe their own successes engaging PHA resources such as Housing Choice Vouchers and project-based rental housing to help end chronic homelessness. The workshop will include information about how to persuade PHA leaders and the flexibility and restrictions that PHAs have.
