HUD’s Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs (SNAPS) cancelled its March 10 webinar, “Infectious Disease Preparedness for Homeless Assistance Providers and Their Partners,” (see Memo, 3/9) due to technical difficulties. The slides and a recording of the 75-minute presentation, however, are now available on the HUD Exchange training page.
SNAPS has an Infectious Disease Prevention & Response page that contains technical assistance materials from HUD as well as guidance issued from federal partners dedicated to preparing for and responding to infectious diseases, including COVID-19.
HUD is also available to provide technical assistance to homeless assistance providers who need support in preventing or responding to the spread of infectious disease. Submit questions to the Ask A Question (AAQ) portal. In Step 2 of the question submission process, select “CoC: Continuum of Care Program” from the “My question is related to” drop down list and write “Health Preparedness and Response” in the subject line.
