Give your input to Virginia’s housing policies

If you’re interested in what’s happening in Virginia in terms of affordable housing and homelessness, you’ll have a chance to hear what the state’s plans are — and offer your ideas — at several “information and input sessions” being held by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development, the Virginia Housing Coalition and the Virginia Coalition to End Homelessness.

The sessions are free, but registration is required. See this page for registration links.

The sessions will include:

  • A summary of community-development legislation from the 2012 General Assembly session.
  • An update on the status of the State Housing Policy Framework and the State Homelessness Plan
  • A discussion of housing issues for the 2013 General Assembly “with special focus on issues of regional significance”
  • Discussion of the newly created Virginia Housing Trust Fund
