LHA Received SCDD Grant

State Council for Developmental Disabilities has awarded the Lanterman Housing Alliance a grant in the amount of $107,800. Once the contract is signed we will use these funds to develop and release a Strategic Housing Framework to meet the housing needs of people with intellectual/developmental disabilities in the State of California who meet the federal definition of I/DD. LHA will be working in partnership with the Corporation for Supportive Housing.  Look for a survey from LHA in early 2018!
