Join today’s (August 31) national call on coronavirus, disasters, housing, and homelessness from 2:30-4 pm ET for field updates on the devastation caused by Hurricane Laura in the Gulf Coast, the wildfires in California, and the derecho in Iowa. We will discuss the state of play between the White House and Congress on a coronavirus relief package, getting the essential housing and homelessness components in the HEROES Act enacted, and working with Congress on other disaster housing response legislation. We will hear from Sam Batko of the Urban Institute on a new tool to help state and local decisionmakers center racial equity when distributing CARES Act funding to communities, get updates from the field, and more.
