WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — Federal homelessness programs are vital, but not sufficient, to achieve the goal of ending homelessness for all Americans. We must enlist federal, state, and local “mainstream” programs that serve low-income people, like TANF, Medicaid, and Housing Choice Vouchers, in our efforts to end homelessness. The U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness has released a guide to better coordinate such resources.
There are far more resources available to serve homeless veterans than veteran-specific resources, and utilizing all appropriate resources can yield more effective results. View “Enlisting Mainstream Resources to End Homelessness” here.
