Housing authorities in Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania are "banding together to recruit a new generation of landlords who can take public housing into the suburbs." They are organizing the first Lehigh Valley Landlord Fair, which "will be the first step in creating more subsidized housing...and moving more of it out of urban clusters and into the Valley's suburbs....most Valley apartments that accept state subsidized tenants are in the urban cores of Allentown, Easton and south Bethlehem. And even those apartments can be hard to find for a family needing three or four bedrooms....More than 350 landlords have registered to attend the free fair, where they'll be able to find out how to become a Housing Choice landlord, get legal advice, and window shop at the stands of home-improvement vendors."
