2022 CARES Act Virtual Conference Materials Now Available

HUD sponsored a 2022 CARES Act Conference to help prepare for and respond to the Coronavirus pandemic. The conference library is now available on the 2022 CARES Act Conference page on the HUD Exchange.

Topics varied across disciplines to give a wide range of knowledge on all topics related to the CARES Act. While the conference heavily discusses the Community Development Block Grant Coronavirus (CDBG-CV) Program, there are also sessions specific to Emergency Solutions Grant Coronavirus (ESG-CV) and Housing Opportunities for Persons With HIV/AIDS Coronavirus (HOPWA-CV) programs.
