GA Emergency Housing Work Group


The work group's goal is to develop, and agree on, a plan to transition from expanded emergency housing to a sustainable emergency housing program by the end of fiscal year 2022.

The Plan

The plan will include:

  1. A strategy for using federal funds.
  2. Policy changes required to the GA Housing Plan and a budget and timeline for implementation.
  3. Consideration of the capacity of organizations and communities to implement.
  4. Proposals for addressing identified constraints.
  5. Consideration of prioritizing vulnerable populations, including those facing catastrophic situations.
