The Biden administration on Monday released a government-wide plan called All in which will focus on reducing homelessness across the country by 25 percent by 2025. The plan is mainly going to work towards finding people housing and helping them with gathering the necessary resources so as to remain housed.
The program used the input of more than 500 people in its design. All of them have either previously experienced homelessness or are advocates, community leaders, and developers. There were also listening sessions hosted by the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) used.
As President Biden noted in a statement, the plan is not focused on getting people into housing, but also on ensuring that they will have the resources and services necessary to succeed. It is a plan based on evidence on how to help better equity and collaboration across all levels.
The All In strategy is in part based on the Obama administration’s efforts to reduce homelessness between 2010 and 2016. However, the White House has noted there has been a slight increase in homelessness in recent years.
As part of their previous efforts to alleviate the homelessness Crisis, the Biden administration had an eviction moratorium during the pandemic.
