California Policy Academy on Chronic Homelessness Holds First Hearing

On April 30, the California Policy Academy held the first of three meetings focused on chronic homelessness.  As we reported last December, the Policy Academy was created through funding awarded by the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and consolidates the efforts of a range of state agencies and non-profit groups under the leadership of the California Housing Finance Agency (CalHFA.)

The California Policy Academy seeks to identify, cultivate, and compile best practices and programs into a framework of resources in order to streamline existing assets, reduce fragmentation, and create opportunities for further collaboration in efforts to end chronic homelessness in California.
