HUD Publishes Resources for LGBT Individuals and Families and Service Providers

HUD has published a package of technical assistance materials on the LGBT Homelessness page.

Creating inclusive and welcoming communities is a fundamental part of HUD’s mission as America’s housing agency. The materials aid providers in implementing the best practices highlighted in Notice CPD-15-02: Appropriate Placement for Transgender Persons in Single-Sex Emergency Shelters and Other Facilities and requirements in the Equal Access Rule, including staff training and changes to program design.

These materials include a guidebook for provider-level policies and procedures, series of staff training scenarios, provider-level self-assessment tool, and community-level decision tree. Together, these materials will help providers adopt requirements and best practices and determine whether they have done so successfully.

If you need assistance, please submit a question to the Ask A Question (AAQ) portal to request policy clarification or guidance. Select the appropriate program - CoC: Continuum of Care, ESG: Emergency Solutions Grants, or HOPWA: Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS - and enter "Equal Access Rule" for the subject.
