Emergency Sheltering & Fair Housing Compliance Training
Mon, September 19, 2022 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM EDT
Emergency shelter settings experience unique complexities when it comes to complying with Fair Housing. Understanding the shelter’s funding, program design, and expectations is important to ensure the use of best practices in supporting those who may need accommodations. This training will help emergency shelter providers consider their diverse settings related to fair housing challenges such as service & emotional support animals, medical requests, and more.
