Homelessness Data in HHS Mainstream Programs


This study explores the extent to which states collect data on housing status and homelessness from applicants for the two largest HHS mainstream programs that may serve individuals or families experiencing homelessness: Medicaid and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).

The study also includes a review of data-collection practices in nine other HHS mainstream programs. [164 PDF pages]
