Do you want to influence HUD's federal housing policy? Join a future listening session


The Shriver Center for Poverty Law is working with Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to develop policies to enhance housing access for those with conviction history.

HUD has expressed interest in conducting listening events with various experts and stakeholders, such as:

  • Directly impacted individuals

  • Organizations led by directly impacted people

  • Housing authorities, developers, and otherhousing providers and officials who have shown a willingness to remove barriers to housing for those with records


As a major funder and regulating body, HUD sets rules and guidelines for developers, housing providers, and housing authorities across the United States. These listening sessions are an opportunity to influence policy changes on a large scale.

If you believe you or your organization would provide an essential contribution to HUD’s efforts, please share your contact information with any specifications to Eric Sirota, ericsirota@povertylaw.org at the Shriver Center for Poverty Law to pass on to HUD.


Unfortunately, this is not a paid opportunity at this time and there is no guarantee that you will be picked by HUD to join. For any other questions, please feel free to reach out to mehra.denbraven@phila.gov
