From our Partners: 2017 Mainstream Voucher Program NOFA Webinar – May 3, 2018 – 1:00 PM EDT

HUD recently issued a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for $100 million in new “Mainstream” housing vouchers for nonelderly people with disabilities. View the Office of Housing Choice Vouchers page to access the NOFA, FAQs, and other materials. Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) are eligible to submit applications, due on June 18, 2018. While not a requirement, HUD is providing points in this competitive process for applications that include partnerships between housing and services agencies, especially those that target housing assistance to assist people with disabilities who are transitioning out of institutional or other segregated settings, at risk of institutionalization, homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless.
The Technical Assistance Collaborative (TAC) and the National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH) are sponsoring a webinar on Thursday, May 3, 2018 at 1:00 PM EDT to provide additional information about this exciting opportunity. The webinar will review the NOFA requirements and provide Continuums of Care (CoC) and homeless services providers with strategies to reach out to and establish partnerships with the Housing Authority(ies) in your community.
The webinar is free of charge. Register for the webinar via SurveyMonkey. Once the survey is completed, select “Continue” and GoToWebinar will verify your information. Select “Register” to complete the registration process. Note that this webinar is specifically for state and local services agencies. For information about related webinars, please email: lsloane@tacinc.org.
Please email lsloane@tacinc.org by April 27, 2018 with any reasonable accommodation requests.

HUD Conducting Survey of All RRH Programs

In April and May, HUD will be conducting a web-based survey of all rapid re-housing (RRH) programs as part of a national study to explore and document how RRH programs currently serve and interact with homeless households. RRH programs across the country, including Continuum of Care (CoC) program- and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) program-funded projects, will receive an email from HUD with a link to the web-based survey. The purpose of the study is to allow HUD, as well as researchers and practitioners around the country, to better understand how RRH programs are being implemented nationwide.
HUD is looking for your input. To make the results as useful as possible, it is important that all RRH programs complete and submit the survey. The survey should take approximately 30 minutes to complete. You can access the survey by clicking on the link within the email message, then entering information about your RRH project directly into the web-based survey form.
I’d like to participate, but didn’t receive an invitation to complete the survey. If your RRH project’s program director has not received a link to the survey by April 30th, please contact Abt Associates by emailing rrhsurvey@abtassoc.com. In the email, please include your program’s name, address, and the name and contact information of the person at your project who should complete the survey.
Questions? If you have other questions about the survey, or want more information, please contact the study team at: rrhsurvey@abtassoc.com.
