CLPHA members represent some of the largest and most innovative public housing authorities from virtually every major metropolitan area in the country.

The new Yakima Veteran’s Housing project is being granted up to 150 – thousand dollars to install solar power in the new facility.
Yakima Housing Authority is redeveloping a former Marine Corps Armory into a housing for homeless veterans and will be able to have solar power thanks to Pacific Power.
Representative Dan Newhouse is in Yakima visiting the new veterans housing project and talking to local leaders about homelessness in the county.
Newhouse toured the former US Marine Corpse Armory building on Tahoma Avenue that will be remodeled and have around 41 units to house homeless vets and their families.
He says this will be a great place to fit the needs of vets and help them get off the streets.
From Curbed Seattle:
Back in June, Seattle officially launched the “ORCA Opportunity” program with free bus passes for Seattle public high schoolers and some Seattle Colleges students. This year, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan announced in her State of the City address Tuesday, the program will be expanded to some of the lowest-income Seattle residents living in Seattle Housing Authority (SHA) properties.
From the Times of San Diego:
The housing commission is the recipient of the Nan McKay and Associates’ 2018 Development Award for its Housing First program, which helps San Diego’s homeless residents find permanent housing. The program has created nearly 6,000 housing opportunities countywide since it launched in November 2014.
From the Ventura County Star:
Housing costs are often a family’s largest expense, eating up a higher percentage of income the less a family earns. With that in mind, a program designed to let Ventura residents receiving rental subsidies keep more as their income increases has received more than $65,000 from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
