Intergovernmental Relations and Public Information
The Intergovernmental Relations and Public Information (IGR/PI) Unit is primarily responsible for handling requests from the public as well as requests from the media.
The IGR/PI Unit has three main roles: legislative analysis, public information, and media coordination.
Legislative Analysis - The IGR/PI Unit is responsible for tracking the progress of Federal and State legislation in key program areas, including housing (Section 8, Public Housing and HOME programs), and community and economic development. The Unit is also responsible for analyzing and reporting on multiple bills and proposals that may impact the CDC or Housing Authority.
The IGR/PI Unit is the primary point of contact with all elected officials, at the Federal, State and local levels. The Unit works with County legislative staff and legislative advocates in Sacramento and Washington, D.C. to develop recommendations and draft legislative correspondence including position papers, promoting key legislative and strategic messages, and assisting with policy development.
Public Information – The Unit positively communicates the agency's mission and programs to key target audiences, which include overseers, customers, and partners. Website content is also managed by IGR/PI. Additionally, the Unit is responsible for responding to all requests received pursuant to the California Public Records Act.
Media Coordination – The responsibility for handling media communications rests with the IGR/PI Unit, which includes responding to inquiries, writing media advisories and news releases, and scheduling print or on-camera interviews.
Please contact the IGR/PI Unit for any media requests.
