(CSH) New COVID-19 Resources for Communities

From Hotel to Home

Exploring Hotel/Motel Acquisitions as a Housing Strategy for
People Exiting COVID-19 Shelters

Many communities have taken bold action to help people experiencing homelessness move into temporary settings, such as hotels, motels, trailers, and large public arenas, in response to COVID-19. As we move beyond the crisis we must not return thousands of residents to the streets after the pandemic. One commonly proposed option is to acquire the hotels and motels where people are temporarily living. From Hotel to Home: Key Considerations for States and Local Jurisdictions Exploring Hotel/Motel Acquisitions as a Housing Strategy for People Exiting Covid-19 Shelters outlines six considerations to take into account when exploring this option, including initial feasibility questions to ask about hotel/motel acquisitions and the importance of exploring multiple re-housing strategies.

Quarantine hotels/motels are a common approach among health and community-based organizations working to protect individuals experiencing homelessness or housing instability during the COVID-19 pandemic. While promising practices are beginning to emerge, these resources are incomplete. Programs that are newer to housing may not be aware of the resources that do exist or how to adapt them to their environment.

Join us for a webinar co-hosted by the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers' National Center for Complex Health and Social Needs, the National Alliance to End Homelessness, and CSH to learn about available resources and best practices and to share your own challenges, strategies, and useful tools.
