HUD's Donovan advocates flexible admissions policy for ex-offenders

HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan wrote a letter to Public Housing Authority (PHA) directors to encourage flexible admissions policies for people re-entering communities following incarceration. The Secretary acknowledged the importance of stable housing in successful reintegration and cited HUD’s efforts to balance public safety with family reunification. The letter urges PHAs to allow those re-entering after incarceration to rejoin their families living in public housing or who are in the Section 8 program when it is appropriate.
