Fact Sheets  |  June 30, 2015

In order to assist homeless service providers to understand the new regulations that the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is proposing for the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) program, the Alliance has created this condensed outline of HUD’s notice of the proposed regulations. This resource is meant to serve as a guide, not as a substitute for the notice. HUD is seeking feedback to consider in the development of the ESG final rule from providers that have gained insight and experience implementing the program’s first interim rule, released in 2011.

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.
