This legislation requires those undertaking the major physical transformation or disposition of certain properties to develop and implement a resident participation plan. Where applicable, housing authorities will not be eligible to apply for financial assistance from the Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) or the State Department of Housing unless there is a plan in place.
HERC and CONN-NAHRO have developed a training curriculum, power point presentation and toolkit to ensure housing authorities understand the legislation, have examples of Plans and signed Resident Participation Agreements and resources they made need to develop their own plans.
In addition to conducting group training, HERC and CONN-NAHRO will also provide technical assistance to authorities addressing their specific situations.
This project is funded through a service contract between CONN-NAHRO (as the project lead) and CHFA.
It is expected that training sessions will be help throughout the summer.
