USICH and HUD Release Criteria and a Benchmark for Ending Chronic Homelessness

Wednesday, June 08, 2016

The United States Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) has announced specific criteria for communities to use as they take action toward goals set forth in Opening Doors, the nation’s federal strategy to prevent and end homelessness. To make sure all individuals experiencing chronic homelessness are on a quick path to permanent housing, communities need robust, coordinated systems that are focused on the same shared outcomes. The new criteria and accompanying benchmark are intended to help communities align local efforts in support of that vision, with a focus on long-term, lasting solutions.
