Federal Policy Brief  |  November 17, 2014

The new approach to homelessness, adopted in many communities and backed by Republicans and Democrats in Congress and the past two Administrations, has already shown remarkable results. In the four years after annual point-in-time counts of homeless people began in early 2005, the number of Americans homeless on a given night dropped from 763,000 people to 643,000, a decrease of 16 percent. Perhaps even more remarkable, during the following period of economic difficulty homelessness continued to decline, albeit more slowly, even as unemployment skyrocketed over 10 percent and more Americans had trouble affording their own housing.
