These hearings provide an excellent opportunity for the community to help shape the regulations for this new program by giving oral testimony or by submitting written testimony. Homes for Families encourages everyone to attend one of these hearings even if you don’t plan on giving testimony.
At our Visioning Day event, many attendees wanted to know where DHCD had located HomeBASE documents on their website. They are located under the Division of Public Housing and Stabilization page, but they have recently put them on the Division of Housing Stabilization page as well.
