Yesterday, the House Financial Services Committee’s Insurance, Housing, and Community Opportunity Subcommittee passed by voice vote the Homeless Children and Youth Act (H.R. 32). This bill streamlines the homeless referral process by amending the U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) definition of homelessness to include children, youth, and their families who are verified as homeless by other federal programs, including McKinney-Vento school district liaisons, Head Start programs, Runaway and Homeless Youth Act programs, and Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Part C early intervention programs. Modeled on child nutrition and higher education policies, it also allows these programs to refer clients to HUD in addition to making them eligible for HUD services. In practice, these changes would cover children, youth and families who live in temporary, unstable situations, including with other households and in motels.
