HOUSING SOLUTIONS BOARD
The Housing Solutions Board (HSB) was first conceived in 2006 as part of the community’s 10 Year Plan to end homelessness based on HUD recommendations. The HSB acts as the Calhoun County Homeless Coalition’s initial and final authority as it represents the broad interests of all stakeholders whose goal is to create self-sufficient individuals and families.
The HSB has been studying options to refine and improve its capacity and ability to be more accountable, transparent and ensure alignment with the rules and objectives as identified by HUD and based on the HEARTH Act of 2009.
