USICH Fact Sheet on Homelessness Prevention


The US Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) recently published a fact sheet on homelessness prevention that was a result of an expert panel and small group discussion facilitated by USICH, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and ASPE (Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation, HHS).

The factsheet outlines 10 Guiding Principles for the successful prevention of homelessness.  In addition, the factsheet delves into the 3 actions that were determined necessary to combat homelessness: provide more housing subsidies, increased collaboration between mainstream programs, and target funding to those most likely to become homeless.
