Federal Policy Update at CSH/SHA Conference

Jordan Press, the Director of Federal Policy for the Corporation for Supportive Housing presented a panel at the December 6, 2007, CSH/SHA Conference entitled Federal Housing Policy Advocacy. This was one of the most important workshops of the year. It served as an opportunity to review the key federal issues as well as strategies for advocating to insure that the resources required to end homelessness in New Jersey are available.

This workshop also provided an opportunity to begin the planning process for the 2nd Annual New Jersey Congressional Reception that will be held on July 16, 2008. In addition to this event several local meetings and tours of supportive housing are in the planning stages. For more information click here.
