Housing Policy Forum

HUD Deputy Assistant Secretary for Multifamily Programs Lamar Seats spoke at the Housing Policy Forum in Philadelphia. This year’s Housing Policy Forum also featured Linda Couch, LeadingAge’s Vice President for Housing Policy. The forum included an update on the facts and figures of growth in the older adult population and increasing gap of affordable supportive housing with services for older adults, current happenings in Congress and the development of LeadingAge’s housing policy platform for 2019.

In 2017, LeadingAge members successfully urged Congress to allow interested Section 202/PRAC communities to convert their rental assistance to the Section 8 platform though an expansion of the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program. With passage of the HUD FY18 budget, RAD for PRAC became a reality

“Let’s talk about it” has been LeadingAge’s primary message to consumers, policy makers, and members during June 2018. We’ve asked millennials to “Carry the Conversation” by becoming the voice of long-term services and supports (LTSS). We’ve been talking with policy makers about a variety of issues that matter to older Americans. And we’ve provided resources that member organizations can use to frame their internal conversations about important decisions.
