Implementing a Homeless Preference in Multifamily Housing: Overview, CoC, Service Providers Webinar
November 30, 2016
This webinar (run time 10:34) gives an overview of how the HUD multifamily homeless preference works in privately owned, HUD-subsidized multifamily properties, and notes the importance of the preference in the federal strategic plan to end homelessness. It explains the key role of Continuums of Care and local homeless service providers -- both in recruiting property owners to adopt the preference, and in sustaining the homeless preference once implemented. The webinar reviews best practices in designing a services and referral package to pair with the homeless preference in HUD multifamily housing and provides a planning roadmap for local communities wishing to promote the preference. This webinar is intended for Continuums of Care, homeless service providers, and government agencies.
