On December 13, 2002, HUD employees participated in the
quarterly training of attorneys under contract to the Alabama Department
of Senior Services (ADSS). ADSS contract attorneys are engaged to
provide free legal services to eligible seniors. The Birmingham Office
managers provided an overview of Multifamily, Community Planning and
Development, Single Family and Public Housing programs that can be
useful to the elderly population. Over 30 people participated in the
training session. They gave HUD high marks for its outreach efforts
and the resources they offered. For their part, HUD staff found new
resources with which to help their clients.
