HUD Publishes Resources for LGBT Service Providers

HUD has published a variety of technical assistance resources on serving the LGBT people who are homeless  for service providers on its LGBT Homelessness webpage. Materials include a guidebook regarding policies and procedures, a self-assessment tool, and staff training scenarios. The materials are intended to help providers comply with the Equal Access Rule (see Memo, 2/3/12) and implement best practices that are highlighted in Notice CPD-15-02 (see Memo, 3/2/15).

The webpage already contained resources for homeless LGBT people who are in crisis and guidance for reporting discrimination.
