(Webinar) The Homeless Emergency Assistance Program: California’s Newest Strategy to Address Youth Homelessness

Please join John Burton Advocates for Youth for a web seminar on Thursday, September 6 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. to learn about the Homeless Emergency Assistance Program (HEAP) which will provide local jurisdictions with $500 M to address homelessness, of which at least 5% must be used to address youth homelessness.

We will be joined by Ginny Puddefoot, the Executive Director of the Homeless Coordinating and Financing Council who will provide an overview of the HEAP program and learn how Jovenes and Corporation of Supportive Housing implement strategies to reduce youth homelessness including homelessness among college students.

Attendees will learn how to identify the entity in their community applying for HEAP funding, how much funding is available to their community, how to determine the proportion of the local homeless population that are unaccompanied youth, and what practices and models are being used to address youth homelessness that can be incorporated into the local application.
