2015-2016 Federal Policy Priorities
CSH will advocate for strong federal investment in programs and initiatives that create supportive housing opportunities and expand access to mainstream programs for homeless and vulnerable populations. Our policy priorities aim to increase affordable housing, improve systems integration, spur innovation to remove barriers for vulnerable individuals and families, and employ cost-effective, data driven practices to develop supportive housing programs.
More specifically, CSH will focus significant energy on increasing funding for HUD’s programs that create and sustain affordable housing including the Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers and McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Grants; secure resources to expand supportive housing for homeless and child-welfare involved families and promote agency collaboration; and spur innovation through the Social Innovation Fund, Treasury’s Pay for Success Incentive Fund, the CDFI Fund and Health and Human Services funding.
