CARES Act Guidance for State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial Elected Officials
A newly-released resource can help elected officials maximize federal resources, made available under the CARES Act, to reduce housing instability and homelessness during COVID-19.
This guidance includes recommendations for COVID-19-specific funding for Community Development Block Grants, Emergency Solutions Grants, and the Coronavirus Relief Fund. It also provides suggested action steps for local officials to use the funds and support homelessness and housing efforts in their communities. The resource was created in partnership with the National Low Income Housing Coalition, National League of Cities, and Mayors and CEOs for U.S. Housing Investment.
In an ongoing webinar series, Alliance staff and other experts will be discussing various tools, guidance, and strategies relating to how providers and homelessness system leaders can respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Alliance has released its 2020 Research Agenda for Ending Homelessness. This document is designed to better inform funders, both private and public, about research questions that will help make policy and practice more effective.
The Research Agenda is focused on highly relevant sub-populations of people experiencing homelessness: older adults, unsheltered homelessness, individuals, and families.
