The Leadership to End Homelessness Audio Conference on Housing Trust Funds will be held on Thursday, November 8, 2007 at 3pm ET. This could be very beneficial to those interested in trust funds including the proposed county-based Homeless Trust Fund.
Housing Trust Funds exist in all but a few states across the country and are an important resource for developing affordable housing. This audio conference will focus on the Housing Trust Fund in the District of Columbia, specifically how it has produced units for people experiencing homelessness.
Angie Rogers of the DC Fiscal Policy Institute will discuss the history of the DC Housing Trust Fund, explain the mechanics of how funds are distributed, and highlight specific priorities for homeless people. Ms. Rogers will also provide tips for community advocates on how to ensure their local trust fund is serving homeless people.
