California State Council for Developmental Disabilities (SCDD) is seeking comments on the Strategic Framework for Housing for People with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities. These comments are due by January 31, 2019.
See the framework: https://scdd.ca.gov/wp-content/uploads/sites/33/2018/12/STATEWIDE-STRATEGIC-FRAMEWORK-FOR-EXPANDING-HOUSING-OPPORTUNITIES-FOR-PEOPLE-WITH-INTELLECTUAL-AND-DEVELOPMENTAL-DISABILITIES-10.16.pdf
Housing is so important for human health and safety. There is a tremendous need for more housing opportunities that are affordable and accessible. Please take some time and give feedback on this framework!
Thanks to US Bank and Banner Bank Housing Now will be conducting several financial education workshops in 2019. These workshops will be held at apartment complexes, schools and other locations.
Housing Now believes it is important for people to plan for their housing future and prepare accurate budgets so they can make ends meet and qualify for secure, future, housing.
Housing Now also believes that it is important to have financial education for those already in housing, that may be at the risk of homelessness.
Stay tuned for more details.
The News and Review publications has been putting together an insert for several newspapers. This is the Inclusionary Publication. Stay tuned for release August 30th! Housing Now took part in creating this document.

Lanterman Housing Alliance, in partnership with Corporation for Supportive Housing and the State Council continue to work on producing the final product of the Strategic Housing Framework.
Although the data from the housing survey is now being tallied you can still provide your feedback. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/distribute-lha-survey
This has been a very difficult task, to identify real and achievable goals on how to produce more affordable and quality housing and housing resources for Californians with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD).
Please take the survey. Thank you!
