Governor Lamont’s Housing Transition Policy Committee Recommendations Posted

Office of Governor Lamont
 

Before Governor Ned Lamont and Lt. Governor Susan Bysiewicz were officially sworn in office on January 9, 2019, they had created 15 Transition Policy Committees made of experts in respective fields of study to develop policy recommendations that the Governor and Lt. Governor should consider once in office. The policy recommendations are now available to the public.

The Housing Transition Policy Committee identified a commitment to end homelessness and preservation of all homeless resources as an achievable goal that the Administration can work toward in the first 100 days.

The main recommendations from the Housing Transition Policy Committee include:

• Encouraging public-private-partnership to drive inclusive and equitable economic development
• Innovating to expand housing resources, incentivize & assist towns and developers and leverage private markets
• Ending all forms of homelessness in Connecticut by 2023 by maintaining and coordinating cross-agency resources
• Improving Public Housing Authority capacity, build efficiencies, share resources, and achieve regional priorities
• Creating a data system to inform strategic investments in housing

Kiley Gosselin, Deputy Executive Director at the Partnership for Strong Communities, served on the Housing Transition Policy Committee.
