USICH, HUD RELEASE CRITERIA AND BENCHMARK FOR ENDING CHRONIC HOMELESSNESS
The U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) and its 19 federal member agencies have adopted a vision of what it means to end homelessness in this country. The following criteria and benchmarks define the federal government's vision for ending chronic homelessness for individuals within communities. The criteria and benchmarks developed are intended to help communities build and fine-tune their systems, to help define the vision of ending chronic homelessness for individuals within communities, and to align local efforts in support of that vision, with a focus on long-term, lasting solutions. USICH will soon be releasing a self-assessment questionnaire to further assist communities in determining whether they have achieved the criteria and benchmark, and whether their system has a comprehensive outreach strategy, and a robust, real-time tracking system.
