As a reminder, all in-person Summit attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19, as well as wear a mask covering their nose and mouth while not eating or drinking. Speakers may remove masks when presenting. For these purposes, CLPHA will follow CDC guidelines and consider attendees to be fully vaccinated if it has been at least two weeks after receiving all recommended doses in the primary series of their COVID-19 vaccination.
In order to expedite the Summit check-in process, we strongly encourage attendees to send proof of COVID-19 vaccination (for example, an image containing the front and back of your vaccination card) via this link before the Summit. You can also show proof of vaccination upon arrival at the Summit venue.
In addition, CLPHA will require that all in-person Summit attendees present proof of a negative COVID-19 viral test result taken no more than 72 hours before the start of the Summit (May 18). Acceptable tests include an antigen test or a nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT), also known as a PCR test. CLPHA will also offer attendees the opportunity to take rapid COVID-19 tests before entering the Summit on May 18 or 19. We will provide more details about how to present proof of a negative COVID-19 test and how to access rapid tests closer to the event.
CLPHA is committed to protecting the health and safety of our attendees and our community, and we are monitoring the evolving pandemic landscape and associated local requirements. As we get closer to the Summit, we may institute additional safety precautions based on the conditions of the pandemic. If it is unsafe to gather in large groups in May 2022, we will transition the hybrid meeting to a fully virtual meeting and notify all registrants. Please see the Registration Terms and Conditions page for information if you need to cancel your registration and how we will handle fees if the event is transitioned to fully virtual.
The Housing Is Initiative, led by the Council of Large Public Housing Authorities, helps build a future where systems work together to improve life outcomes.
Fragmented service delivery systems and siloed policymaking often fail to address the needs of low-income individuals and families holistically, resulting in stagnant outcomes and costly inefficiencies. CLPHA’s Housing Is Initiative is based on the premise that systems can better meet these needs and improve life outcomes when they work together.
