COVID-19 Webinar Series: COVID-19 and Data Collection Resources for Your Community
Tuesday, April 21st -- 3:00 pm ET 
The data your system gathers during COVID-19 is important: it can support public health planning, inform need-based public and private funding, and contribute to research on best practices around this type of crisis.
This webinar will provide information related to HMIS data collection, privacy concerns, mobile data collection, as well as research and population sampling to determine the degree to which COVID-19 has impacted the homeless community.  Experts in these areas will provide important information and share tools that will help your data collection efforts in the field.

COVID-19 Webinar Series: Federal Funding to Address Homelessness and COVID-19: Ask the Experts
Thursday, April 23rd -- 3:00 pm ET
The CARES Act provided important new financial resources for addressing homelessness, both through grants to communities' homelessness systems and through direct payments to most low-income individuals and families. This webinar will provide details about what new money is available and how to access it. It will also update listeners on the prospects for additional resources in upcoming legislation.
