Getting It Done: The American Rescue Plan Way

December 16, 2021

The American Rescue Plan (ARP) represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to significantly reduce homelessness in some communities and end it in others. These historic resources should be prioritized for the most vulnerable people, including the rising unsheltered population living in tents and cars.

The U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) interviewed several communities about how they’re implementing ARP funding for emergency rental assistance (ERA), emergency housing vouchers (EHV), and health centers. The resulting guidance, “Getting It Done: The American Rescue Plan Way,” is intended to help other communities maximize the impact of this funding to prevent and end homelessness.
