State and Local Policy Work

CSH works to integrate supportive housing into state and local policy, advocating for programs that help homeless families and individuals move into supportive housing. Staff across the country are engaged with policy work at different levels.

For example, California is a state where we have a particularly robust focus on policy. See our California policy priorities.
