The memorandum highlights the use of TANF to support rapid re-housing in communities, which NAEH also explores in its strategy profiles of Mercer County, NJ and Salt Lake City, Utah.
Mercer’s work is an example of a successful partnership between the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program and service providers who are working together to re-house homeless families.
The Alliance’s Center for Capacity Building has released a new addition to its “Coordinated Assessment Toolkit: The Assessment and Referral Processes: Coordinated Assessment Checklist Addendum.”
The Alliance has published on its website a profile that examines a rapid rehousing program in Utah that has returned more than 1,000 formerly homeless families to permanent housing.
Unlike many of the spending cuts or tax measures, which provisions in the new bill either extended for a year or made permanent, sequestration was delayed for only two months, until early March.
