Job Description


The Alliance Has a New Website

Over the Labor Day weekend, the Alliance re-launched its website with a number of new features and navigation updates designed to improve the user experience and provide more detailed information about upcoming events.

The website remains under construction, so the Alliance staff would like to thank visitors for their patience as we iron out the disruptions and glitches that are inevitable in this type of transition. We ask that visitors update their bookmarks and subscriptions to ensure that they are linked to the right pages and getting the most up-to-date information. Users having trouble reaching the right page or experiencing other technical issue may want to try refreshing their cache.

Among the new features are drop-down navigation on the primary search menu and a new calendar feature with upcoming event details. Additionally, the Alliance blog will now be hosted on our website under News and Events.

Alliance to Host Webinar on Coordinated Assessment

On Monday, September 10 at 2 p.m. ET, the Alliance will host a webinar on implementing coordinated assessment under the new interim Continuum of Care (CoC) rule. The webinar will define coordinated assessment and discuss key aspects for communities to consider as they move toward implementation, including tips on remaining compliant with the regulation and general best practices. The Alliance will also highlight resources available to communities as they embark on the implementation process. The webinar will be recorded and made available through the Alliance's website at a later date.

Registration Opens for CoC

On Thursday, August 30, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced the availability of Continuum of Care registration in HUD's application and grants management system for its homeless programs.

HUD made the announcement for fiscal year 2012 in a published notice that provided collaborative applicants with an outline of the functions and requirements of the annual registration process in the system, which is called e-snaps. It also described changes that will occur as a result of the amendments to the McKinney-Vento Act under the HEARTH Act.

The deadline for registration is 7:59 and 59 seconds p.m. ET on Monday, October 1.
The National Alliance to End Homelessness is a nonpartisan, non profit organization dedicated to solving the problem of homelessness and preventing its continued growth.
