Washington County Hosts Public Meeting to Review Housing Transitions Action Plan

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

In June 2018, Washington County kicked-off a project to evaluate homeless housing needs and gaps throughout the County. The study is exploring housing challenges faced by homeless individuals and identify recommendations for homeless and transitional housing for the County to consider and potentially pursue in partnership with existing service providers. The project is funded by a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Planning Grant program administered by New York State Homes and Community Renewal (HCR). “There is a shortfall of affordable housing units in the County, as well as insufficient access to housing for the disabled.” said Laura Oswald, Director of Economic Development “In a rural area like Washington County, the homeless and at-risk populations may be less visible than other places. But studies suggest homelessness has increased in recent years, along with the impacts of homelessness on families in transition.”
