Homeless Status: Recordkeeping Requirements Webinar

Date Published: March 2012


This webinar is the first in a two-part series on documentation. It describes recordkeeping requirements for the Final Rule of the Definition of Homelessness. In addition to a review of acceptable documentation for each category of homelessness, this webinar explores HUD’s preferred order for documentation, as well as standards for ensuring that records maintained by program staff sufficiently demonstrate compliance with the recordkeeping requirements.

Please note that this two-part series on documentation is planned as a follow-up to the “Determining Homeless and At-Risk Status, Income and Disability” webinar, which originally aired on December 13, 2011. Viewers will be expected to be familiar with the information presented in that webinar before attending this series. It can be viewed from the Homeless Resource Exchange archives using the link above. Additionally, HUD recommends that viewers have the “Criteria and Recordkeeping Requirements for the Definition of Homeless” available for reference while viewing this webinar. It is available for download using the HUDHRE.info link above.

This webinar was delivered on May 8, 2012 as a part of the Ready, SET, Go! webinar series and was re-broadcast on May 11, 2012. The resources posted below are from the re-broadcast.
