The COVID-19 pandemic has led to economic hardship and housing instability for millions of Americans. With eviction moratoria expected to expire at the end of 2020, individuals and families are at risk of losing their housing.
Join the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) new Homeless and Housing Resource Center (HHRC) on December 16, 2020 from 3:00-4:30 PM EST to explore strategies for eviction prevention and housing retention.
Participants will hear from U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) leadership, an experienced housing attorney, and local Continuum of Care (CoC) leadership about implementing data-informed, targeted prevention efforts that prioritize racial equity. Presenters will share strategies that can be implemented now to prevent future housing instability when the moratoria expire. The speakers include the following:
- John Kuhn, Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) National Director, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
- Larry McDonough, Attorney at Law and Adjunct Professor of Law, Senior Minnesota Counsel, National Anti-Eviction Project, Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law
- Randy McCoy, Executive Director of Metro Area Continuum of Care for the Homeless (MACCH), Omaha, Nebraska
