2020 Transition-Age Youth Conference (TAYCON) Workshop on the Homeless Housing, Assistance & Prevention Program

This workshop, presented by Anna Johnson, provided an overview of the Homeless, Housing Assistance and Prevention (HHAP) Program and discussed how current providers, including THP-Plus, shelter and those interested in serving college students can apply for HHAP to support one of eight evidence-based interventions the program will fund. Attendees learned how to identify the entities in their community applying for HHAP funding, how much local funding will likely be available, and how to advocate locally for funding for homeless youth. Panelists included Lahela Maddox with the Homeless Coordinating & Financing Council, the state entity administering HHAP; and Debbie Pell of Bill Wilson Center in Santa Clara County.
