Research Agenda for Ending Homelessness

Research on homelessness has produced a series of robust findings, filling in knowledge gaps and identifying solutions that help policymakers and practitioners move forward with cost-effective approaches to ending homelessness. Recently, the Homelessness Research Institute, the research and education arm of the National Alliance to End Homelessness, released a Research Agenda for Ending Homelessness. The Agenda was developed by leading academics, policy researchers, and policy experts; it aims to prioritize key questions by guiding funders and their research collaborators during the development of research questions. The research questions outlined in the agenda include questions on families, chronically homeless adults, youth who experience homelessness, and rural homelessness.
