Almost all of the communities showing progress in ending homelessness have initiated some type of rental assistance program that subsidizes housing for people who are homeless. These programs vary in size and scope with some offering one-time cash infusion, some offering ongoing shallow support, and others offering deeper subsidies. This workshop examined key considerations in designing a local housing subsidy program and where to find the funding to make it a reality.
