Strategic Action Plan on Homelessness. Comparison of Goals and Strategies:  2003 Strategic Action Plan and 2007 Strategic Action Plan

03/01/2007

The purpose of this appendix is to demonstrate how the goals and strategies from the original strategic action plan evolved into the new, revised framework.  The table below shows how each original goal and strategy was either reordered, reframed, renumbered, deleted, and/or unchanged, and which goals and strategies are entirely new to the plan (these actions can be found in the Action column).  In the Goal/Strategy column each crossed-off section indicates language from the original plan that was either reframed or deleted altogether.
