Q

Several measures are looking at Emergency Shelter data. Our community has sanctioned very structured homeless camps that could provide similar data, however they are not emergency shelters. Is HUD considering a new program type for these types of transitional camp/shelter sites?

A

At this time, camps are not counted as a separate project type and HUD is not considering adding them as a project type. Camps will continue to be viewed as unsheltered situations for measurement purposes, as indicated in the language in the HEARTH “Homeless” Definition final rule. HUD will continue to learn what it can and provide guidance and technical assistance where needed to assist communities to address encampments, sanctioned or otherwise.
