This month, the Alliance kicks off the Demographic Data Project, which examines 2018 Point-in-Time Count data to better understand rates of homelessness among different populations, and promote equity in serving them. The first installment explores the high rates of unsheltered homelessness among transgender and gender non-binary people experiencing homelessness.
On May 10, 2019, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) proposed a rule change that would no longer allow "mixed-status" families – households with both documented and undocumented members – to qualify for federal housing assistance. This proposed rule would force families out of public housing and Section 8 programs, effectively spurring homelessness, forced family breakups, and/or loss of housing assistance.
Until July 9, you can submit a comment to HUD to oppose this proposed rule, which could lead to eviction for more than 100,000 people in HUD-assisted housing.
