Statewide Action Plan for Preventing and Ending Homelessness
Through the Action Plan, Cal ICH pursues a vision for the Council and the state’s work to prevent and end homelessness focused on purposeful, action-oriented coordination and alignment among state departments. The Plan was developed through input and collaboration with over 60 community entities, public agencies, nonprofits, and other experts. It is through this input that the 5 action areas and the goals were developed. The council’s Action Plan orients the state’s efforts to drive purposeful, meaningful, and measurable progress toward preventing and ending homelessness in California, motivated by a vision of a future in which homelessness in California is: rare, because it is prevented whenever possible; brief, ended quickly whenever it does occur, through a focus on Housing First approaches and housing outcomes; and a one-time experience, ended successfully the first time, so that no Californians experience homelessness repeatedly.
In March 2021, the Council adopted the original Action Plan for Preventing and Ending Homelessness, which was updated in September 2022 and adopted by the Council. In September 2023, the Council adopted an updated Action Plan for Preventing and Ending Homelessness. Council Staff develops a progress report each year. The report is a comprehensive collection of the state’s efforts toward preventing and ending homelessness in the fiscal year.
