Thanks to NC HFA for this information:
The Corporation for Supportive Housing recently released an updated version of its guide (HERE) on legal issues in supportive housing (prepared by Goldfarb & Lipman, L.L.P.):
The following is an excerpt:
Originally created and posted on the Oregon Housing Blog.Between the Lines offers insight into and information about some of the laws and regulations that govern supportive housing. The Guide clarifies how supportive housing providers can comply with laws governing their work, while realizing the goal of providing housing stability for as many people as possible.This Guide was designed primarily to assist supportive housing providers--groups that develop, own, manage, and provide services in supportive housing--and their attorneys. The purpose of Between the Lines is to help supportive housing providers make informed decisions related to their policies, practices, and legal positions. Therefore, it will be most useful for executive directors, program managers, administrators and other policy makers within organizations. Between the Lines will also be useful to government agency staff responsible for funding and monitoring supportive housing.
