HUD to Host Panel Discussion on Housing and Services

Regulation | April 13, 2021 | by Juliana Bilowich

HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research will host a panel discussion on Services in HUD-assisted housing. 

On April 29, HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research will host a panel discussion on "Services in HUD-Assisted Housing." Among other topics, the discussion will cover HUD's Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) and Resident Opportunities and Self-Sufficiency (ROSS) programs. 

According to HUD's announcement of the event, the event will look at how HUD programs can help families continue to have access to affordable housing, shifting away from a "sole focus on obtaining self-sufficiency." The event will also discuss how HUD-assisted households can grow savings and weather crises, reverse wealth-building inequities, improving housing choice, and meet personal goals. 

Beyond looking at immediate employment impacts, the discussion will also identify other valuable resident outcomes, like mental and physical health. Peggy Bailey, Senior Advisor on Rental Assistance in HUD's Office of the Secretary, will moderate the discussion. 

The discussion will take place on Thursday, April 29, from 2-3:30pm ET. Registration for the free event is available here
