Communications and Public Affairs
The Communications and Public Affairs (CPA) Unit is primarily responsible for handling requests from the public as well as requests from the media.
The CPA Unit has three main roles: legislative analysis, public information, and media coordination.
The CPA 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 CPA 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.
The Unit positively communicates the agency's mission and programs to key target audiences, which include overseers, customers, and partners. The agency's website content and social media pages are also managed by the CPA Unit. The Unit is also responsible for the preparation and distribution of the agency's bi-weekly E-Newsletters. Additionally, the Unit is responsible for responding to all requests received pursuant to the California Public Records Act.
The responsibility for handling media communications rests with the CPA Unit, which includes responding to inquiries, writing media advisories and news releases, and scheduling print or on-camera interviews.
Please contact the CPA Unit for any media requests.
