HOME-ARP Webinar Series: Planning Process
November 17, 2021
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 development of the HOME-ARP Allocation Plan, this pre-recorded webinar reviews the requirements for the consultation process, the development of the needs assessment, gaps analysis, priority needs, and HOME-ARP activities, and the public participation process.
This webinar is part of a webinar series made available by HUD's Office of Affordable Housing Programs (OAHP) to assist communities in planning for their allocation of HOME-ARP funding. View all webinars in the HOME-ARP Webinar Series.
Participants will learn how to:
- Review HOME-ARP planning requirements
- Identify the agencies PJs must consult with and the information they can provide in order to develop a needs assessment and gaps analysis
- Review the process to complete the needs assessment and gaps analysis and identify priority needs for the qualifying populations
Who Should Attend?
This webinar is designed for HOME PJs and other local jurisdictions preparing to administer an allocation of HOME-ARP, Continuum of Care (CoC) partners, homeless service providers, local housing providers, and public housing agencies.
