HHS issued an Information Memorandum (IM) on February 20, 2013, which urges jurisdictions administering Temporary Assistance for Needy Family (TANF) funds to use this resource to help families avoid or exit homelessness.
We MUST ensure they provide increased funding for HUD’s McKinney programs to ensure that we do not have to make further cuts to the programs that serve our nation’s most vulnerable people.
If you have never taken an advocacy action before, there has never been a more crucial time do so as programs that prevent and end homelessness in our communities is very much at risk.
To assist CoCs in NJ affected by Hurricane Sandy, HUD has a tool that will help enhance their capacity to respond and recover from Sandy as well as future disasters.
CoCs are invited to submit a brief, 3-5 page application in response to the Request for Applications (RFA) to participate in the SOAR TA Project by March 15, 2013.
