State and local leaders are beginning to understand that providing affordable, permanent housing is fundamental to reducing justice system involvement, particularly for people with behavioral health needs. However, affordable housing is scarce nationwide, and people who have been involved in the justice system face barriers to accessing available housing, including stigma and prohibitions based on criminal records. In light of these challenges, this webinar is the third in a series that will equip justice system leaders with the tools for meaningful collaboration with housing, behavioral health, and other key partners to fully leverage available funding to provide and develop housing for people leaving the justice system.
