Community-level Responses of Homelessness Assistance Programs to COVID-19: Data from May 2020

A new survey, conducted by the Alliance in May 2020, demonstrates the continual challenges and gaps in resources Continuums of Care (CoCs) face while serving people experiencing homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The survey, targeted to CoC leadership, inquires how communities are able to screen people experiencing homelessness, track data, place people in housing, attain and use personal protective equipment, and navigate staffing issues as a result of the pandemic. Its results also emphasize the connection between housing and health care, and innovative strategies being implemented to swiftly move people experiencing homelessness into housing.
