“These sessions are important in helping us understand the housing issues in your region, the gaps in existing technical assistance and how we might work together to make access to affordable and safe housing more equitable,” said Laura Shufelt, director of MHP’s Community Assistance team. “We are interested in how your housing goals align with efforts to address racial and economic inequality. What we learn from you will inform our team goals moving forward.”
