Using the Framework for an Equitable COVID-19 Response

In partnership with several leaders in the effort to end homelessness, the Alliance created the Framework for an Equitable COVID-19 Homelessness ResponseThe Framework provides guidance for how homelessness systems can leverage the CARES Act and approval of other funding sources (such as FEMA Public Assistance) to equitably conduct emergency protective measures while planning for recovery-oriented uses of these funds.

The principles of the Framework include: 
  1. Advancing racial justice and equity
  2. Addressing the highest needs first
  3. Getting people into housing 
  4. Building strong partnerships
  5. Acting quickly
