Chronic Homelessness

In 2010 the Administration released Opening Doors: The Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness and set the goal to finish the job of ending chronic homelessness by 2015 (this goal has since been extended to 2017). In December 2015, HUD published the Final Rule on Defining “Chronically Homeless”. Continuum of Care (CoC) recipients must comply with the regulations promulgated by this rule as of January 15, 2016.
