Homeless Services Reform Act (HSRA) Modernization

Monday, July 10, 2017

The Homeless Services Reform Act (HSRA) was drafted over a decade ago and focused largely on ensuring access to shelter for persons experiencing homelessness during hypothermic weather to prevent cold weather injury and death. Since that time, there have been significant changes to federal policy (via the Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing, or HEARTH, Act of 20091) as well as the District’s local landscape.
