Criteria and Benchmark for Achieving the Goal of Ending Chronic Homelessness

The United States Interagency Council on Homelessness has just released criteria and benchmark for achieving the goal of ending chronic homelessness. The criteria and benchmark are intended to help communities build and fine-tune robust, coordinated systems to ensure that people experiencing chronic homelessness are on a path to permanent housing with tailored supportive services as quickly as possible. The criteria are designed with a focus on long-term, lasting solutions and help align local efforts in support of our vision of what it means to end homelessness, making it rare, brief, and a one-time experience.

For more information on this development, see the USICH website: https://www.usich.gov/tools-for-action/criteria-and-benchmark-for-ending-chronic-homelessness
