COVID-19 Local Response Initiative: Cities Addressing Homelessness
Webinar 3: Ideas to Leverage Progress Towards Permanent Solutions

Wednesday, June 3, 2020

Overview: In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many cities worked to bring people off the streets and/or out of congregate shelter into isolated accommodation, including hotels. This third webinar will the feature examples of how a national government and city/county can use this opportunity to assess and move people into permanent housing, with appropriate supports.

Speakers will address estimating the capacity for continued sheltering capacity and thinking about capacity for long term solutions, such as moving clients to permanence, and developing testing and triaging protocol for clients and staff.
