CSH Toolkit Offers Guide to Supportive Housing in Suburbs, Small Towns

The Corporation for Supportive Housing’s Southern New England Program has published an online toolkit for creating supportive housing in suburban and small towns. The toolkit covers how to build community support, development timeline and tasks, involving the media, working with local government, dealing with discriminatory land use laws and other legal issues, project development, partnerships, finances, and site selection. The guide includes numerous documents that can be customized, such as a sample community agenda and a sample development budget. The Small Towns Toolkit is available on CSH’s Web site.
