Webinar Recording: DHS Housing Strategy

Webinar Recorded: July 15

Housing is critical to a person’s health and well-being. DHS believes that too many Pennsylvanians who have extremely low incomes are rent-burdened, too many people experience homelessness or are at risk of homelessness, and too many people who live in institutions could live in the community with assistance. The housing strategy will approach housing challenges in Pennsylvania by:

Removing barriers unique to each person
Connecting people with opportunities
Expanding affordable housing in Pennsylvania
Partnering with local agencies
Utilizing data to measure progress
Pooling resources and sharing ideas

The webinar covers:

The core elements and action steps of the DHS 5 Year Housing Strategy


Ben Laudermilch, Executive Housing Director, Department of Human Services
Jonathan McVey, Executive Housing Coordinator, Department of Human Services
