CLPHA Implementation Calls

CLPHA will soon begin hosting a series of calls around implementation issues (e.g., demo/dispo) to allow for more peer-to-peer information sharing. Typically, a brief presentation will be followed by a Q&A and discussion. There will also be a chance for members to ask operational questions at the end of the call. Further information will be posted shortly.

CLPHA Member Engagements

As leaders in affordable housing and community development, CLPHA members are frequently called upon to participate in events and deliver presentations on their work and how they are collaborating with partners in other sectors to strengthen communities and improve lives. Where possible, CLPHA will share information about these engagements, which may be of interest to affordable housing stakeholders and partners.

Is your housing authority involved in an upcoming presentation? Have you recently participated in an event that was recorded or generated materials that can be shared? Send the details to CLPHA.
