Sacramento Housing Alliance (SHA) advocates for more housing for people who are homeless and who are extremely low income. SHA has written a working paper on ending homelessness.

HUD has directed local jurisdictions to have a plan to identify and address impediments to fair housing. This includes having enough housing for people of all incomes in integrated communities. There is also a need to have low income housing close to quality schools and access to fresh foods.
HUD has mandated the jurisdictions to reach out to the community for feedback. Locally, in Sacramento, the report is due to HUD April 2017. This is a short time frame to have a quality report.
You can participate in this important report.
