VHA Fall Policy Forum
In their first year as the merged Virginia Housing Alliance, VHA will present legislative and housing program updates, as well as updates on innovative homeless services work being done by the continuums of care (COCs) in Virginia. Those in the housing and homelessness world including housing providers and developers, housing authorities, homeless service providers, CDFIs and state agencies, as well as housing advocates and partner organizations are invited to attend.
The two-hour sessions will be split into two sections with staff presenting updates in the first half and facilitating attendee input in the second half. The input portion will seek reaction to their proposed legislative focus areas, as well as learn about what is going on in our community with housing and homelessness needs. Whether that means taking an issue to the General Assembly, working with a state agency on the issue, or more generally including it in the scope of needs that they are working to have met in the state in the longer term, they need to hear from us to help shape their work. This session will conclude with a brief tour of an on-site SRO property.
