USICH Updates COVID and Disaster Collections of Federal Guidance and Resources
Coronavirus variants and the hurricane season present unique threats to people experiencing homelessness and threaten to force more Americans into homelessness.
To help communities plan for, respond to, and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and environmental disasters, the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) recently updated two collection pages of federal guidance and resources.
The COVID-19 page includes information, sorted by department and sub-sorted by agency/program, on:
- Protecting people experiencing homelessness from coronavirus; and
- Relief funding provided by the CARES Act, the American Rescue Plan, and the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 that can be used to help people experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
The disaster page features information from:
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC);
- The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA);
- The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS);
- The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD);
- The National Center for Homeless Education (NCHE); and
- The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
