Save the dates for two webinars designed to help homeless advocates and service providers more effectively understand and navigate the new legislative session in Hartford. CCEH and PSC have also scheduled Advocacy Days for April 1 and April 2 for all CAN representatives to meet with their legislators.
Point In Time Count Being Rescheduled
Due to the potentially catastrophic blizzard, Connecticut will be postponing the Point-In-Time Count. CCEH is currently in contact with HUD seeking the appropriate permission, and will alert everyone once the official word is in.
For more information, please contact your local Point-In-Time Count coordinator, or Brian Roccapriore at email@example.com.
Governor Dannel P. Malloy announced Jan. 21 that Connecticut is one of only five states to be chosen for Zero: 2016, a national initiative organized by the nonprofit Community Solutions dedicated to ending veteran and chronic homelessness within the next two years. Malloy also announced an expansion of existing permanent housing subsidies, and that the state Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services is awarding 15 private, not-for-profit agencies $1.1 million to provide in-home supportive services to 176 recently housed persons who have experienced chronic homelessness.
