HUD’s Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs (SNAPS) is conducting six identical webinars in January to ensure that all stakeholders understand the new definition of chronically homeless and the recordkeeping associated with the new definition (see Memo, 12/7/15).
Marcy Thompson, Senior Advisor to the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Special Needs, and Brett Gagnon, Senior Specialist in the Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs will discuss the history of the definition of chronically homeless and the rationale for the changes implemented in the Final Rule, the final definition of chronically homeless, including a highlight of the major changes, and recordkeeping requirements for the documentation of chronic homelessness.
The intended audience includes Continuum of Care (CoC) leaders and recipients, as well as other stakeholders. Each webinar is targeted to specific HUD regions and is limited to 1,000 participants. Stakeholders may register for a webinar not in their region.
The three remaining webinars will take place on:
January 12th, 1:00 pm ET – Regions 4 and 6
January 13th, 1:00 pm ET – Regions 1 and 2
January 14th, 1:00 pm ET – Regions 5, 7, and 8
