Listening Session on Federal Plan to End Homelessness

The United States Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) is gathering comments from stakeholders nationwide as it prepares to revise and strengthen the Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness. As part of that process, USICH staff will be holding a listening session in Boston on December 6, 2017.

This session seeks input from people who have experienced homelessness, service providers, advocates, and government officials willing to share their recommendations. The meeting is an important opportunity to ensure that our regional voices are heard as the updated plan is developed.

The current Federal Strategic Plan, Opening Doors, has helped drive significant national progress. But there is much more work ahead. You can review a summary of the goals, objectives, and strategies within the current plan in this Participation Guide.

VCEH co-chair, Josh Davis, will be attending the listening session on behalf of the VT Balance of State Continuum of Care, and others are welcome to join! Please remember to RSVP to Josephine Hauer at Josephine.Hauer@acf.hhs.gov by Thursday, December 1.

If you are unable to attend the listening session but wish to provide feedback, USICH is soliciting input until Dec. 31. Comments can be filed on the USICH website at https://www.usich.gov/strengthening-the-plan.
