HUD’s Office of Affordable Housing Programs (OAHP) will host a webinar series on the HOME-American Rescue Plan Program (HOME-ARP). The American Rescue Plan (ARP) provides $5 billion through the HOME-ARP program to HOME Participating Jurisdictions (PJs) (see Memo, 4/12). In collaboration with other community stakeholders such as CoCs, HOME PJs can use the funding for targeted investments in housing and other assistance for people experiencing or at imminent risk of homelessness, as well as for other vulnerable populations. The webinars will review Notice CPD-21-10 (see Memo, 08/21), and participants will learn about the requirements established in the notice.
The 4-part webinar series is designed for HOME participating jurisdictions (PJs) preparing to administer HOME-ARP, as well as CoC partners, homeless service providers, local housing providers, and public housing agencies. Topics include:
- Overview of Notice CPD-21-10, Qualifying Populations, and Allocation Plan Requirements—Sept. 27, 2021, 2 - 3:30 PM ET
- Preferences, Referral Methods, and Rental Housing Requirement—Sept. 29, 2021 2 - 3:30 PM ET
