Federal Policy Brief  |  May 15, 2015

You might have heard of the Homeless Children and Youth Act (S.256), which was introduced by Senator Dianne Feinstein to address family and youth homelessness.

This document explains three detrimental impacts this bill would have and suggests alternative approaches to address the problems the bill aims to address.
