In this session you will learn best practices from communities that successfully implemented the EHV program, including building strong partnerships between CoCs and PHAs and using the vouchers strategically to house those most in need. Based on a research study on the implementation and utilization of the EHVs (conducted by the Alliance’s Homelessness Research Institute) you will gain an understanding of what elements of the EHV program can and should be continued to improve the impact of the regular Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8).
