In addition to weekly national calls on COVID-19, homelessness, and housing, NLIHC is providing new opportunities for local, state, and national organizations to dive deeper into the critical issues facing our communities during the coronavirus pandemic. These working group calls provide an opportunity for people across the country to engage, share, learn from each other, and discuss actions to address housing and homelessness issues.
For the past two months, NLIHC’s Disaster Housing Recovery Coalition (DHRC) has been hosting weekly national calls to share information about the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on people experiencing homelessness and lowest-income renters. The calls examine the responses of federal, state, and local governments, homeless services, housing providers, and local advocates. More than 2,000 people participate in each call.
In addition to the weekly national calls, advocates can join the following working group calls (most are held weekly): Legislative Working Group; Tenant Talk Live (biweekly, for low-income renters and resident leaders); Working with FEMA; State and Local Implementation of CARES Act funds; and Long-Term Solutions for an equitable federal disaster housing recovery system.
