Upcoming Webinar: COVID-19 Homeless System Response: Discussion of Equity Products - July 9, 2020 - 3:00 PM EDT
HUD’s Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs (SNAPS) invites homeless assistance providers and their partners to participate in a webinar on Thursday, July 9, 2020 from 3:00 - 4:30 PM EDT to discuss SNAPS COVID-19 equity products. Communities across the country are reimagining their homeless system response.

SNAPS, in conjunction with their TA partners, released Rehousing Activation and Racial Equity Part 1: Equity as the Foundation in June 2020. The goal of this document is to orient communities with beginning their rehousing strategies and system reform with equity in mind.
SNAPS will continue to release guidance and invites you to this webinar to walk through the Foundation as Equity concepts defined in the additional documents:
