Oregon Reentry Has Donovan Letter on Admissions of Ex Offenders.

Link to Oregon Reentry post is HERE; from the website: 
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Director Shaun Donovan sent a letter last week to executive directors of public housing authorities (PHAs) clarifying HUD’s position regarding people with criminal record’s eligibility for public housing. In the letter, which was co-signed by Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing Sandra B. Henriquez, Secretary Donovan encourages PHA executive directors “to allow ex-offenders to rejoin their families in the Public Housing or Housing Choice Voucher programs, when appropriate.”
Direct link to June 17, 2011 Donovan letter posted on a National Reentry Resource website is HERE.
