Coordination with PHAs to Serve Vulnerable Populations

Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) receive funding to administer a variety of housing programs and housing-related services. Commonly known for Housing Choice Vouchers (aka Section 8), PHAs often manage other types of housing subsidies for targeted populations as well as a portfolio of an affordable housing stock. Funding for homeless-specific housing projects is only a small component of what HUD offers. Developing partnerships between a Homeless Continuum of Care and a PHA can be instrumental in building capacity in homeless systems. This session includes a brief overview of HUD subsidies available through PHAs and led by Miami-Dade Homeless Trust’s Executive Director, Victoria Mallette, who is instrumental in coordinating with PHAs to secure housing for people experiencing homelessness.
