2016 Advocates' Guide: An Educational Primer on Federal Programs and Resources Related to Affordable Housing and Community Development
The toolkit is designed to provide advocates with an overview of VAWA's housing provisions and includes administrative guidance, recent legal developments, and sample advocacy materials.
This manual provides legal information and steps to build prevention and response strategies to housing related hate activities.
This manual lays out federal housing programs including programs for the elderly and section 8 housing.
The guide is offered in chapters and numeric sections and covers the basics of counting unsheltered homeless people, counting unsheltered people in public places, counts based on use of non-shelter services and sample data collection instruments. Advocates in search of a basic background on the topic should start with Chapter 2.
Note: The guide is not offered as a method for counting sheltered people but does reference Martha Burt's Practical Methods for Counting the Homeless: A Manual for State and Local Jurisdictions as a resource for counting sheltered homeless people.
This website provides resources and contact information for shelters and other DV resources.
