Local governments are faced with keeping their residents safe, while also keeping up with the ever-changing policy developments at all levels of government. From pursuing aggressive, proactive steps to stem the spread of the virus to exploring ways to prevent or mitigate the destabilizing impacts, we recognize that communities across the country are experiencing this crisis on very different timelines.

This webinar is meant to keep local stakeholders informed and engaged on the most recent developments coming from the federal government. Rob Finn, Director of Policy and Research, will offer insights into how federal policy may impact housing insecurity and neighborhood stability. The passage of the CARES Act; and the historic levels of relief and economic stimulus for individuals, small businesses, and state and local governments; provides important protections and funding streams to keep families in their homes and stabilize neighborhoods. With the CARES Act and additional legislative proposals, we anticipate the need of local governments to understand the implications to community stability and future revitalization.
