Endnotes

[1] Some states have redirected other federal funds to support SOAR. This issue is discussed in later chapters throughout the report.
[2] The TA contractor requires trainers to administer the evaluation form and pre-post test to participants in all first in-state trainings. Trainers are encouraged to administer these in subsequent trainings but are not required to do so.
[3] State funding for homeless shelters will soon be shifted to the Department of Housing and Community Development. Service delivery will continue to reside with the DTA.
[4] Data maintained by the former state lead indicate that in  2005-2006, 123 initial SOAR applications were filed, and as of October 1, 2006, 51 of those were approved, 25 were denied, 34 were pending, and 13 were abandoned (for instance, because the case manager lost contact with the client or the client died).
[5] Cited figures reflect training evaluations provided by 261 trainers from 8 of the 12 TTT sessions held.
