These are the slides for the webinar "Enhancing Rapid Re-Housing & Employment: Program Recommendations for Enhancing Rapid Re-Housing Design and Implementation" held June 15, 2017 at 1 pm Central Time. This webinar provided program-level recommendations for enhancing the design and delivery of rapid re-housing with employment supports. Many rapid re-housing participants face significant barriers to work and have experienced chronic unemployment, which can make it difficult for participants to pay market rate rent at the end of their rental subsidy. As this intervention comes to scale, it's vital to ensure that all rapid re-housing participants have access to employment, training, and supportive services that can help them succeed in quality jobs and stabilize in housing.

Noelle Porter of the National Alliance to End Homelessness, Caitlin Schnur of Heartland Alliance's National Initiatives on Poverty & Economic Opportunity, Connie Martin of Community Teamwork, Inc., and Tanner Phillips of Neighborhood House presented.
