On Tuesday, September 24, the New York Regional Office held a "Meeting Community Needs in Challenging Times - HUD Briefing for Elected Officials" at its headquarters in lower Manhattan. The three hour session, which drew over 45 people from various congressional, state and local elected offices, focused on topics ranging from HUD's Sandy recovery efforts and future disaster preparedness to the impact of the FY 2014 budget and sequestration on HUD programs. In addition, HUD programs, such as RAD (Rental Assistance Demonstration), Choice Neighborhoods, the LGBT Rule, and the 203(k) program. The briefing served to keep government staff members up to date on HUD's current work and to also facilitate collaboration between congressional, state, and local elected offices and HUD staff. HUD staff also held a one-on-one clinic to help elected staff representatives with particular constituent issues and concerns.
