COVID-19 Relief Package: What Philanthropy Needs to Know and Act On

Host Organization: Funders Together to End Homelessness


With the passing of the COVID-19 Relief Package, it is critical for philanthropy to work closely with state and local governments to coordinate responses and resources to ensure the safety of people experiencing homelessness and to prevent people from experiencing homelessness or housing instability due to COVID-19.

This webinar will provide an update from national partners about what the final bill includes and what was left out, what needs and concerns they’re hearing from communities across the country, and how philanthropy should be engaging in public-private partnerships to leverage resources and maximize COVID-19 response efforts in communities to support people experiencing homelessness and service providers. We'll also look at how funders are supporting their communities and critical questions or areas for concern that we are thinking about.

Webinar objectives: 

  • Understand the urgent needs of people experiencing homelessness and housing instability as it relates to the outbreak of COVID-19.
  • Learn about specific actions philanthropy can take to coordinate resources and responses in light of the recent COVID-19 Relief Package.
  • Hear and think about equity implications of COVID-19 and our response to the pandemic.
