SPOTLIGHT Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness

The Plan will be submitted to Congress by May 20.

What we Learned

In order to meet the HEARTH Act’s legislative mandate, USICH adopted as a key value the importance of aggressively soliciting public engagement-at all levels-for the development of the Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness.

The process to create the Plan was designed to be transparent and provide multiple opportunities for input, feedback, and collaboration. USICH received unprecedented levels of public engagement. Regional stakeholders meetings were held in February and early March to engage leaders of regional and state interagency councils, as well as stakeholders from throughout the multi-state regions. Nearly 1,000 participants provided input in these meetings and over 7,700 people visited an online forum to share their ideas.

This is a summary of what USICH has learned from a host of regional stakeholder meetings, an online interactive forum, and listening sessions with federal workgroups.

If you have any additional comments beyond what you may have posted online or in one of the regional meetings, please email fsp@usich.gov.
