Increasing Access to HUD CoC Housing for Culturally Specific Communities
This webinar provides an overview of best practices to increase access for culturally-specific communities to HUD Continuum of Care (CoC) housing programs and DV/SA/HT Bonus resources in the current HUD Notice of Funding Opportunity. The presentation discusses how to build effective partnerships with CoCs and DV coordinating councils to increase gender and racially equitable access to mainstream HUD CoC housing resources via Coordinated Entry systems; and learn creative approaches to partnering to ease administrative and reporting responsibilities for culturally specific programs. Daya Houston, a community-based South Asian culturally-specific organization, shares how they expanded their culturally inclusive housing initiatives and shares the overall positive impact of these best practices models in their communities. Presenters (Rachna Khare from Daya Houston and Shafeka Hashash from GCADV) highlight how to connect with your HUD CoC to partner in accessing and implementing available resources.
