    About the Course:

    The New York Alliance for Inclusion & Innovation (NY Alliance) Housing Navigator Course was developed in 2015 through the Balancing Incentive Program (BIP) grant. The 38 hour course provides relevant education and resources to assist a Housing Navigator in supporting a person with I/DD in creating housing options. NY Alliance's Center for Innovation & Learning will once again deliver the course in 2021!

    Throughout this training, students will:

    • learn how housing is funded, developed and sustained;
    • understand how to base the housing process on the needs of the individual, their social capital, their assets and income and their choices and options;
    • learn how to design an individual's housing plan;
    • obtain cutting edge, available resources and become part of a larger 'housing' community of practice;
    • be qualified to create housing opportunities for individuals and to develop agency capacity for more housing options.


    The New York Alliance for Inclusion & Innovation SW CPE is recognized by the New York State Education Department's State Boards for Social Work as an Approved Provider of Continuing Education for licensed social workers provider number #0105.
