Free Webinar: Understanding and Mitigating the Impact of the COVID-19 Health Crisis on Homelessness in Arizona
September 2, 2020
Conservative estimates predict that rates of homelessness may increase as much as 30% in Arizona as a result of the current pandemic. Researchers with the University of Arizona’s Southwest Institute for Research on Women will share results of their recent study and policy brief on the forecasted impacts of the COVID-19 health crisis on homelessness in Arizona and immediate policy steps that can be taken to mitigate anticipated increases in rates of individual and family homelessness through eviction prevention, supportive housing, and other interventions.
During this training, participants will:
- Learn about the modeling process used by SIROW researchers to forecast impacts of the pandemic on homelessness in Arizona
- Better understand the potential impact of the pandemic on Arizona communities
- Review immediate program and policy actions that can be taken to mitigate the risk of rising homelessness
