COVID-19 Resource Digest for Homeless Providers – October 27, 2020

Digest for October 27, 2020

The emergence of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) calls for enhanced cooperation between public health authorities, homeless service systems, and other partners at the local level. To support these partnerships and the vulnerable households served, HUD and its partners are issuing guidance from subject matter experts on best practices and lessons learned.

This bi-weekly digest contains recently published resources from HUD’s Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs (SNAPS) and its national, state, and local partners.

Internal Revenue Service (IRS):

  • November 10 is National Economic Impact Payment (EIP) Registration Day:
    • National EIP Registration Day will take place just a few days ahead of the extended November 21, 2020 registration deadline. This special event will feature support from IRS partner groups inside and outside of the tax community, including those that work with low-income and underserved communities. The IRS has already sent nearly 9 million letters to people who may be eligible for the $1,200 Economic Impact Payments but don't normally file a tax return. The letters, along with the special November 10 event, both urge people to use the Non-Filers: Enter Info Here tool, available exclusively on IRS.gov.
