The National Alliance to End Homelessness believes that homelessness is a problem with a solution, and changes in federal policies and resources will be necessary to implement that solution. These changes should be outcome focused, research-based, and targeted. While ambitious, they should be realistic, framed by an understanding of the budget and programmatic environment.
This policy guide applies the principles set forth in the Ten Year Plan to the current federal budget and legislation before Congress. Each year, Congress and the Administration work together to pass appropriations for federal programs, including many that help poor and homeless people. They also work to initiate or reform housing, health, income, and other programs and to shape the economic environment
through tax policy and other regulations. This guide is designed to share information with our members and conference attendees about those measures and their impact on people who are homeless or threatened with homelessness. (NAEH)
