The community should closely track PSH inventory as it becomes available and compare this inventory to the targets set in the community housing gaps analysis. The community should closely track PSH availability (both units and subsidies) and utilization to ensure PSH resources across the County are being fully utilized.Community stakeholders should examine lease-up demographic data for voucher holders who are successful at leasing a unit versus voucher holders who are not successful. Community stakeholders should continue to hold public officials accountable for removing bottlenecks and obstacles in the development process.
