On Tuesday December 6th, 2022, the Partnership for Strong Communities hosted its IForum Tenant-Based Subsidies in Connecticut: Equitable Expansion.

Over 100 attendees tuned in to hear from Suzanne Piacentini with U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development as she discussed the different kinds of housing subsidies that exist, who utilizes housing subsidy programs in the state, and the impact these housing vouchers have on the lives of Connecticut residents and families.

  • Phylicia Adams, Corporation for Supportive Housing

  • Peggy Bailey, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

  • Michelle Molina, J D' Amelia & Associates
