Prompted by suggestions from CLPHA on the need to provide guidance to PHAs on ensuring access to vaccinations for residents and staff, HUD will host a series of webinars in April focused on vaccine access. The second webinar on April 21 will feature a presentation from the Housing Authority of the City of Austin on their efforts to help their residents access vaccines.
