Save The Date! Region 9 Federal Regional Interagency Council on Homelessness (FRICH): Nevada Webinar Series
On August 4th and 11th, the Federal Regional Interagency Council on Homelessness (FRICH) for Region 9 (AZ, CA, HI, NV, and the Outer Pacific) will host the 3rd annual FRICH Summit, taking place over 2 half-day virtual sessions. This webinar series will bring together community stakeholders from across Nevada to share best practices and findings among homeless service providers in the region. The FRICH plans to highlight recent HUD funding and state updates as well as a focus on homelessness in rural and tribal communities.
A follow-up to last year’s FRICH Virtual Series in Maricopa County, AZ, this event is part of a series of convenings put on by the FRICH throughout the region in the coming years. Attendees will include representatives from federal, state, and local governments, as well as grantees, stakeholders, and individuals with lived experience of homelessness. Service providers, elected officials, and community leaders throughout Nevada and Region 9 are encouraged to attend.

What is the FRICH?
Guided by the vision, goals, themes, and objectives of Home, Together, The Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness, the FRICH is a consortium of federal agencies working to prevent and end homelessness among Veterans, the chronic homeless, and families with children and youth in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, and the Pacific Territories.
The FRICH is co-chaired by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Regional Administrator and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Regional Director. The FRICH meets regularly to focus on region-wide needs, specific geographic areas, and special populations. Home, Together, Executive Orders, and Administrative Initiatives serve as the underlying authority.
