ALA and Enterprise are Offering Two New Webinars


Partnering with HUD to Deliver Home Share Services

Thursday, July 18, 2013 from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm (ET)

As part of Enterprise’s series on shared housing, this webinar is a follow-up to the April 11th event and will showcase a shared housing program that uses rent subsidies to support homesharing.

Learn about the Enterprise-sponsored Strategic Guide for scaling shared housing and hear from the Shared Housing Center of Dallas, Texas.  Participants will learn about the Center’s Homeshare CARE program, a HUD leasing program that provides rental vouchers for home sharers.   The rent stipends ensure reliable payments to housing providers and the subsidy goes twice as far as when compared to the cost of subsidizing a private unit at fair market contracted rates. 

How to Market Shared Housing to Your Community

Thursday, July 25, 2013 from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm (ET)

While shared housing makes sense, its perception among the public is challenged by attitudinal and cultural barriers.  Learn strategies for overcoming these barriers and increasing recruitment.  You will hear from program experts who use clever marketing, messaging, and community outreach activities to elevate the conversation of shared housing.
