September 30, 2021 Print ShareThis

Update: Materials for each webinar in the Coordinating U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Housing-Related Supports and Services with HUD Housing Assistance Webinar Series are now posted at the links below.

This webinar series introduced Public Housing Authorities (PHAs), Continuums of Care (CoCs), and other housing stakeholders to HHS opportunities that fund and provide housing-related supports and services. Each webinar provided information on partnership opportunities and on-the-ground examples of successful approaches to pairing HHS agency resources with HUD housing assistance for people experiencing homelessness, including the 70,000 Emergency Housing Vouchers (EHVs) awarded by HUD to PHAs through the American Rescue Plan (ARP).

The series introduced HHS opportunities and resources offered by:

  • Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA)
  • Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)
  • Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)
  • Administration for Children and Families (ACF)

Training Objectives

Attendees were equipped to:

  • Identify available HHS resources that fund and cover housing-related supports and services in their state and communities
  • Locate their state and local agencies responsible for funding and delivering these resources
  • Reach out and form partnerships to ensure successful referrals, lease-up, and ongoing tenancy

Who Should Attend?

This series was informative for affordable housing stakeholders, including PHAs, CoCs, HUD Multifamily operators, affordable housing owners/operators, local funders, and community partners, who are looking to pair services with their housing subsidy to better serve clients experiencing homelessness.

The series was particularly useful for CoCs and PHAs administering the EHV program; PHAs with a homeless admission preference; and PHAs with a special purpose voucher program such as Mainstream, Family Unification Program, HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH), etc.
