The Housing Services Division of the City of Ventura will be hosting its next housing forum on Wednesday, November 15, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Juanamaria Elementary School, located at 100 S Crocker Ave, Ventura.
The forum will cover a wide range of topics, including landlord and tenant rights, affordable housing development, housing choice vouchers, paths to homeownership, and homelessness. As housing costs continue to rise in the community, it is essential for individuals and families to be aware of the resources available to them.
Presenters at the event will include the Central Coast Alliance United for A Sustainable Economy (CAUSE), Housing Rights Center, Ventura County Community Development Corporation (VCCDC), Housing Authority of the City of Ventura, People’s Self-Help Housing and US Vets.
The VCCDC will discuss paths to homeownership and down-payment assistance programs for first-time homebuyers. The City’s Housing Services Division will also provide information about the programs and objectives outlined in the City’s Housing Element, a plan that was recently certified by the California Department of Housing and Community Development.
“We’re thrilled to host our upcoming forum in the East side community, catering to the residential needs of our local residents by offering vital insights into housing resources and affordable programs,” expressed Leona Rollins, the Housing Service Manager. “It’s crucial that both individuals and families are well-informed about the resources at their disposal and have a clear understanding of their rights as renters and homeowners.”
