Advocates struggle with a lack of available and affordable housing in tribal communities, while survivors face barriers getting their housing applications approved. Federal funds have just been released to tribes and tribal housing authorities to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic. These funds can be used for system-level changes, including tribal housing development and improvements. We know that Covid-19 and "stay at home" orders have created additional dangers for victims and increased the need for safe housing to flee from violence. This webinar will help brainstorm ideas, and give specific examples from other tribal communities. Presenters will review approaches for educating and advocating for short and long-term system responses to meet the needs of survivors. You’ll hear about new resources, tools, and ongoing technical assistance available to make these system level changes realistically manageable.
