This past January, President Obama signed into law the Frank Melville Supportive Housing Investment Act, amending and updating the Section 811 Supportive Housing for Persons with Disabilities program.  Among other things, this bill provides a new authority to HUD to allocate long term operating assistance funds to states where a strong supportive housing plan exists to link services to mainstream affordable housing for persons with disabilities.

HUD will be holding a listening session on April 14th from 1:00 – 3:00 pm to get stakeholder input and hear suggestions on how HUD might implement this new authority.  You are invited to attend.  However, participation is limited to 50 individuals so please RSVP by April 4th, 2011 to Lisa Wimbush-Lathern at

The session will be held in the Brooke-Mondale Auditorium at HUD Headquarters in Washington , DC .  A conference call-in number will be provided for those unable to attend in person.

We look forward to your input and thank you in advance for your participation.
