This report is intended to provide a resource to rural community organizations involved with or considering housing plus service developments, including information and technical assistance resources, funding sources, and successful models. The report includes case studies of four
rural nonprofit organizations and one rural public housing authority that utilize housing plus services to serve their populations. The case studies examine how organizations are responding to the specific needs of their communities in the face of limited resources. Although each case study examines a different area of the United States, they share certain commonalities such as strong community collaboration, innovative community organizations, and targeted yet flexible housing plus services programs.
