CLPHA, supported by the National Equity Fund ( NEF) and the HAI Group - recently announced the launch of a RAD Collaborative for housing authorities and their partners now using or considering the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) to preserve and revitalize the nation's public housing stock to benefit residents and surrounding communities.
As CLPHA said in its announcement email, the Collaborative will be open to all those committed to making RAD an innovative and successful new tool in this critical effort.
Working with HUD, the Collaborative will support RAD's successful implementation by
responding to evolving practice needs and lessons learned during the demonstration. Among its activities, the Collaborative will offer or facilitate:
CLPHA announced that Patrick Costigan, Kathleen Foster and Steve
Holmquist will serve as strategic advisers to the Collaborative and coordinate its
activities and functions. Pat and Kathleen recently formed the CF Housing Group, LLC,

counsel, is with Reno & Cavanaugh, PLL.
As part of the launch, Pat, Kathleen and Steve will join Sunia Zaterman as presenters during a webinar scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 17, 2015 from 1pm and 2:30pm EDT. There's still time to register for the webinar.
