Designing a Local Housing Subsidy Program

Thursday, March 13, 2008 at 3pm ET

Housing subsidies are a key ingredient in ending family homelessness. Unfortunately, federal subsidies are scarce and difficult to obtain. Programs are responding by developing their own subsidy programs, including short-term, shallow, and declining subsidies.

Featured Speaker: Beth Stokes

This audio conference will feature Beth Stokes, executive director of Hamilton Family Services. She will discuss First Avenues: Housing Solutions for Families, a shallow subsidy program in San Francisco, CA. She will discuss resources and funding, the design elements of the program, and outcome measures.
