COVID-19 Implications: Outreach and Shelter:

During this unprecedented pandemic, guidance is published daily for homeless service providers. HUD, CDC, SAMHSA, the healthcare industry, and states. This work offers documents to help providers screen, prioritize, shelter, and rehouse people experiencing homelessness (PEH).

This training will review the guidance related to street outreach for persons who are unsheltered and the emergency shelter response, including non-congregate shelter (NCS). Providing support services and addressing tangible needs are critical to the public health response in ensuring preventing the spread of COVID-19. Participants will learn how to continue their outreach and shelter services while adhering to the latest public health and HUD guidance. This training will also review sources of funding related to carrying out these services.

Overview of the CARES Act Emergency Solutions Grant :

On March 27, the CARES Act was signed into law. This legislation provides $12 billion of rental assistance across the nation, including over $140 million for Florida. $4 billion was set aside for Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG-CV), along with additional funding for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG-CV), Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA-CV), and other rental assistance programs for low income households.

This training will focus on the ESG-CV allocations and the potential impact it can have in significantly reducing homelessness. Participants will learn about traditional ESG funding, how that differs from ESG-CV funding, and the need to understand fully the associated regulations. We will also discuss HUD waivers and guidance related to ESG, ESG-CV, and CoC programs that are available as of the date.

Cultural Competency

This training focuses on utilizing cultural humility to practice cultural competence. ​

 

Cultural humility is a willingness to suspend what you know, or what you think you know, about a person based on generalizations about their culture. Rather, the worker learns about their clients’ culture, and the ways they self-identify, from being open to what they themselves have determined is their personal culture and identification.
