Partnerships across housing, transportation, aging and disability, and health are essential to ensure housing stability. Transportation is necessary for community living. With transportation assistance, many older adults and people with disabilities can shop for groceries, get to medical appointments, stay connected and engaged, and otherwise access everyday locations and participate in their community.
Partnering to help people connect to transportation options is therefore a critical component of making community living possible.
- Highlights effective pathways for creating cross-sector collaborations with public transportation as a key partner to improve housing stability.
- Builds awareness of technical assistance resources to strengthen partnership development, including an online tool that identifies possible community transportation partners.
- Answers participants’ questions about forming effective cross-sector partnerships to address housing stability through transportation access.
Launched in partnership between the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Housing and Services Resource Center (HSRC) fosters cross-sector partnerships between the organizations and systems that provide housing resources and homelessness services, health care and mental health services, independent living services and other supportive services. HHS and HUD are working together to expand accessible, affordable housing; streamline access to services; coordinate and better leverage resources; and ultimately help people exit homelessness and live in sustainable, affordable community housing.
