Resource: From Evidence to Action: A Federal Homelessness Research Agenda

This research agenda (PDF, 19 pages) offers a roadmap for academic researchers, philanthropy, students, and others committed to advancing the most effective responses to homelessness in the United States. Through this research agenda, USICH seeks to: 

  • Strengthen the nation’s collective knowledge base on what works to prevent and end homelessness through rigorous qualitative and quantitative evidence 

  • Reinforce existing evidence to combat disinformation 

  • Align research priorities and prevent fragmentation at both the federal and non-federal levels 

  • Facilitate meaningful engagement and collaboration with a diverse group of funders, researchers, people with lived experience, and partners at every stage of developing and implementing research 

  • Promote research to address gaps in policy and practice, and facilitate the uptake of evidence by decision makers and service providers 

  • Catalyze governmental and non-governmental investment in homelessness research
