Designing and Implementing an Emergency HOME TBRA Program Part 1: Pre-Planning and Design
June 10, 2020 | 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT
HUD's Office of Affordable Housing Programs (OAHP) hosted the first webinar in a 3-part series that guides HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) Participating Jurisdictions (PJs) on designing and implementing an emergency HOME Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) program in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The first webinar in the series focused on critical initial pre-planning steps involved in determining whether and how to implement a TBRA program using flexibility provided by statutory suspensions and regulatory waivers announced on April 10, 2020. While suspensions and waivers will help PJs accelerate program implementation, there are key issues PJs must consider when designing a local TBRA program to ensure it will be effective and compliant.
The webinar covered the following topics:
- Identifying and segmenting priority needs
- Assessing available resources
- Approaches to program administration
- Seeking needed approvals
- Policy clarifications
This resource is part of the Emergency HOME TBRA Toolkit.
Note: The HOME COVID-19 suspensions and waivers issued to facilitate the use of HOME-assisted TBRA for emergency and short-term assistance expires on September 30, 2021. All resources developed under the Emergency HOME TBRA Toolkit (sample templates and forms) are obsolete after September 30, 2021.
Attendees were able to:
- Make informed decisions about implementing a TBRA program in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
