New Emergency Housing Voucher Resource Available for PHAs

As CoCs continue to partner with Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) to utilize new Emergency Housing Vouchers (EHVs) for people experiencing homelessness, they are encouraged to share HUD's new "Emergency Housing Vouchers: A How-To Guide for Public Housing Agencies.

This document is designed to help PHAs understand and implement EHVs within their systems, and strengthen CoC collaborations established during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please share with your local PHA to ensure that EHVs continue to be distributed in an efficient and equitable manner.
