Forum series will address housing and homeless issues.

Beginning this month, an interactive forum will be held in ten cities across the country to offer participants the chance to exchange views on major programs and key initiatives with the Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD).

The forums are cosponsored by HUD and the Federal Interagency Council on the Homeless.

The day-long forums are a continuation of the oilgoing regional dialogue between CPD and communities, interest groups, non-profit organizations, service providers and clients, elected officials and State and local governments. Topies include:

* developing a comprehensive housing and community planning process;

* exchanging ideas about economic development and empowerment zones;

* a discussion of developing a federal plan to end homelessness;

* a discussion of what aspects within the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Act are working well.
