Due to the recent advice of the CDC regarding COVID-19, the Florida Housing Coalition will provide our in-person training and technical assistance using alternative means, such as a series of webinars and virtual meetings. The Catalyst in-person meetings such as site visits and workshops will not be held between now and May. We are currently working with FHFC on specifics and will quickly announce alternatives.

SHIP Rental Assistance After the State of Emergency
April 20, 2021 - 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
SHIP may provide rent assistance in blue sky times as well as after a disaster. This training distinguishes the main differences between the two, including selecting and prioritizing eligible beneficiaries, and income determination because regular rent assistance does not allow for self-certification. Participants will learn about SHIP rent policy for rent deposits, rent subsidies, eviction prevention, and disaster assistance. Presenters will address a variety of rent assistance resources to help participants identify when it is most effective to use SHIP. Learn how to determine the portion of SHIP funds that may be available for a rental assistance strategy before and in response to a disaster.
