HOME-ARP Webinar Series: Homeless System Overview
July 01, 2021 | 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM EDT
The American Rescue Plan (ARP) provides $5 billion through the HOME-ARP program to HOME Participating Jurisdictions (PJs). In collaboration with other community stakeholders, HOME PJs can use the funding to make targeted, strategic investments in housing and other assistance for people experiencing or at imminent risk of homelessness, and other vulnerable populations.
To support planning for HOME-ARP, this webinar introduced PJs and partners to the role of Continuums of Care (CoCs) in planning and coordinating the homeless systems in communities.
This webinar is part of a webinar series hosted by HUD's Office of Affordable Housing Programs (OAHP) to assist communities in planning for their allocation of HOME-ARP funding in advance of HUD publishing an implementing notice for the program. View all webinars in the HOME-ARP Webinar Series.
Participants learned how:
- HOME PJs and CoCs can effectively plan together in preparation for HOME-ARP funding
- To strategically leverage HOME-ARP funding with other investments to develop projects best suited to community needs
- Other communities have utilized projects eligible under HOME-ARP funding to respond to homelessness
Who Should Attend?
This webinar was designed for HOME PJs and other local jurisdictions preparing to administer an allocation of HOME-ARP, CoC partners, homeless service providers, local housing providers, and public housing agencies.
