The webinar will present a range of opportunities and strategies designed to support organizations serving homeless populations in their efforts to enroll clients in available health insurance, including Medicaid, and will provide specific steps that organizations can take to overcome barriers to enrollment along with detailed information on how to facilitate access to enrollment and health care. Key subject matter experts and leaders in this field will showcase their work and will include:

The webinar primarily targets agencies administering HUD-funded CoC and HOPWA housing and supportive services, but is also open to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) grantees with a key role in collaborating with HUD’s grantees to address the healthcare needs of people experiencing homelessness (i.e., Ryan White and Health Center grantees, Runaway and Homeless Youth Program grantees, SAMHSA Targeted Homeless and HIV Programs grantees).
The webinar will be recorded and available for future viewing on the HUD Exchange Training and Events page.
