Webinar: Best Practices for Implementing a Rapid Rehousing Strategy

*Please note SFCDC is not the organizer of this event.

“The Florida Legislature has codified that SHIP jurisdictions may provide up to a year of rent subsidies for very low income applicants who are homeless and/or special needs households.  Participants will hear from SHIP jurisdictions that have implemented a rapid rehousing SHIP strategy in coordination with their Continuum of Care agencies and other community partners. Key Topics include determining eligibility of applicants, rent limits for the units, steps in the rental assistance process, and the importance of case management. Presenters will review how SHIP can dovetail with other types of rent subsidies (ESG, HUD CoC, HOME, SSVF, etc.), how to implement the rent subsidy strategy, how to select and work with a sub-recipient organization, and housing counseling services that may be offered in conjunction with SHIP rental assistance.”
