HUD recently published a suite of new resources for communities to strengthen their Housing First approach:
- Housing First Implementation
- Working with Project Participants in a Housing First Approach
- Housing First in Specific Project Types
- Trauma-Informed Care
As communities are implementing the Housing First Approach in their homeless crisis response systems, they sometimes struggle with taking the approach from a set of guiding principles to policy and procedures in their projects. This set of resources can assist communities and agencies in implementing Housing First in their projects. Regardless of project type, the Housing First approach can be utilized to reduce barriers to access for project participants and to maintain project participation.
The full range of tools can be found on the HUD Exchange.
