Policy

The Alliance believes that homelessness is a problem with a solution, but the solution requires outcome-focused, research-based, and targeted changes in federal policies and resources. This section is designed to share information about key legislation that creates, modifies, or funds federal programs impacting people experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
  • Policy Priorities
    Each year, the Alliance develops a set of core policy priorities to guide our work. These priorities were updated in May 2017.
  • Funding for Homelessness Programs
    Each year, Congress passes a budget, allocating funds to federal programs, including housing and homelessness programs. This page explains where Congress is in the process and includes funding levels for key programs.
  • Take Action
    There is no better strategy for impacting federal policy than advocacy. Join our efforts.
