See the below, this is not our first time hearing this call to organize!
We all can recognize that federal funding will not be the growth engine
of housing counseling going forward. A number of states and localities have developed
valuable models for collaboration where housing counseling groups collaborate to develop joint programs, training, and funding sources.
NHRC is launching a series of discussions aimed at encouraging and supporting local collaborative efforts.
Our first will be on Tuesday, October 4 at 4:00 pm ET, 1:00 pm PT. We will feature the experiences and lessons learned from the New York State collaborative efforts, which have leveraged powerful relationships with the state attorney general, legal assistance groups, housing advocates, and others to generate valuable funding, programs, and training for housing counselors throughout the state. We will have discussions with representatives from HomeSmartNY, Empire Justice Center, Center for New York City Neighborhoods and others on how to make collaboration work.
Please register and join us for this important, beginning discussion:
Also, please feel free to share this invitation with others who you feel will be interested in local collaboration. We are trying to build a list of counselors who are interested in helping build more collaborative efforts.
