New York City Regional Housing Alliance Creating Homes and Fostering Independence

The New York State Association of Community and Residential Agencies (NYSACRA) was awarded a Balancing Incentive Program (BIP) grant to provide education that promotes and enhances individual housing options. Early into the grant, NYSACRA hosted a series of regional forums to gain insight into the unique considerations involved in creating or obtaining housing within a region. There was at least one forum in each of the five Developmental Disability Regions. 

Results of the regional housing forum meetings were included in the Report to theHousing Task Force published in December of 2015. The next stage in this work is to meet again in each region and assist in creating new housing alliances or enhancing existing ones. Developing and maintaining a working collaborative regionally with ALL housing stakeholders is truly essential in generating new housing opportunities. 

NYSACRA is pleased to sponsor a morning conference on how to partner with developers, lenders, government stakeholders, provider agencies and people receiving support and their families to create more independent housing options for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
