Beginning in late 2017, the County developed ambitious targets, gathered dozens of stakeholders, and led a 100-Day housing challenge with service providers. As a result, Palm Beach County was able to house 121 youth within that 100 day period—despite the County having no youth homelessness system previously in place.
This year's award will be presented during the 2019 National Conference on Ending Homelessness. Congratulations to all who contributed to Palm Beach County's success!

2019 Mainstream Voucher Program NOFA: Additional Information and Webinar 7/18
HUD recently issued a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for $150 million in new "Mainstream," or "811," housing vouchers for non-elderly people with disabilities. The Mainstream NOFA incentivizes Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) to form partnerships with Continuums of Care and to target housing assistance to assist people with disabilities who are experiencing homelessness, at risk of becoming homeless, or have previously experienced homelessness and are currently clients in a permanent supportive housing or rapid rehousing project.
The Alliance and the Technical Assistance Collaborative (TAC) are sponsoring a webinar on Thursday July 18 at 2:00 E.T. to provide additional information about this year's application process. The webinar will review the NOFA requirements, and provide CoCs and homeless services providers with strategies to reach out to and establish partnerships with the PHAs in your community. CoCs currently partnering with PHAs on this program will share their advice.
The webinar is free of charge, but you must register. You will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
