The U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) is seeking input on its Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness.
The message from the USICH:
The U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) is in the process of creating a new Federal Strategic Plan, and we want your input. Please answer some, or all, of the five questions below.
Regardless of the path our plan ultimately takes, it will be guided by equity and evidence. USICH is dedicated to addressing deep-rooted racial inequities and to advancing proven practices like Housing First. We believe housing should be a right – not a privilege.
The federal strategic plan will help communities leverage the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, which represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to not only respond to the immediate needs of the pandemic but also invest in long-term solutions to homelessness.
USICH invites feedback from anyone, particularly people who have experienced homelessness; people who serve the LGBT, BIPOC, or veteran communities; and people whose work involves the justice system.
