Listening Sessions on housing this summer

The Virginia Housing Coalition and the Virginia Coalition to End Homelessness in partnership with the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development are holding six regional information and input sessions this summer. The meetings are open to anyone with an interest in affordable housing and homelessness who wants to have a say in the future housing policies in the state.

The sessions will include:

  • A summary of the outcomes of housing and community development legislation during the 2012 General Assembly session.
  • An update on the status of the State Housing Policy Framework and the State Homelessness Plan.
  • A discussion and prioritization of housing issues for the 2013 General Assembly session (with special focus on issues of regional significance).
  • Input into the design of the newly created Virginia Housing Trust Fund. The Department of Housing and Community Development must submit a program plan to the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees by November of this year.
