Permanent housing with individually tailored supportive services is the solution to chronic 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 shared outcomes.
The U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness and Department of Housing and Urban Development have released criteria and benchmarks for ending chronic homelessness that are intended to help communities build and fine-tune those systems, to help define the vision of ending chronic homelessness within communities, and to align local efforts in support of that vision.
