HUD Notice: Appropriate Placement for Transgender Person in Single-Sex Emergency Shelters and Other Facilities

Last week, HUD posted the Notice on Appropriate Placement for Transgender Persons in Single-Sex Emergency Shelters and Other Facilities. This Notice provides guidance to ESG recipients and subrecipients receiving Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG), Continuum of Care (CoC) or Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) funds regarding how best to provide shelter to transgender persons in a single-sex facility. This notice also provides guidance on appropriate and inappropriate inquiries related to a potential or current client’s sex for the purposes of placing transgender persons in temporary, emergency shelters or other facilities with shared sleeping areas or bathrooms.
