About Our Community
The purpose of the CLPHA Place-Based Housing Assistance Committee is to provide membership input on policy, program and funding issues pertaining to place-based housing assistance that are of interest and importance to the CLPHA membership. The committee will play a lead role in forming CLPHA’s policy positions and priorities as CLPHA considers what is needed to preserve, improve and expand place-based housing assistance. Committee members will share their expertise on topics including preservation, mixed finance, redevelopment, and recapitalization. CLPHA staff will consult with the committee as specific questions or issues arise and will provide input on relevant policy matters to CLPHA’s board of directors. CLPHA staff will provide administrative support to the committee and peer-to-peer learning and networking opportunities for its members to share information regarding operational and programmatic best practices.
Committee Chair: Douglas Guthrie, Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA)
Committee Members: CLPHA member housing authorities can designate the executive director, senior management or program staff to serve on the committee.
