The Housing Assistance Council (HAC) is hosting a webinar entitled “Access to Health and Homeless Services for Rural Veterans” on May 6th from 2-3 PM. Participants in the webinar will hear from two key agencies of the US Department of Veterans Affairs: the Office of Rural Health and the Center on Homelessness. Leaders of these agencies will discuss opportunities for rural non-profits to work with the VA to provide housing and services to veterans. You can register at the following link: http://www.ruralhome.org/hac-services/training/event/44 The National Advisory Committee on Rural Health and Human Services also recently released a policy brief on the issue of rural homelessness, which is available here.
