The Massachusetts Law Reform Institute is presenting a training event on Accessing Affordable Housing in Boston on December 9, 2009, 9:30 am to 4 pm. The training is for community advocates, and legal, social services and health services staff. From the brochure:
Low-income housing is an increasingly scarce commodity in Massachusetts, and locating affordable housing is an activity that requires a combination of awareness, skill, and perseverance. This training focuses primarily on the rules and regulations governing access to public and subsidized housing programs. The training examines issues that advocates need to understand when helping poor individuals and families find housing. Using a combination of lecture, case study, and small group discussion, the faculty introduces participants to every stage of the subsidized housing application process.
