The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Health Care for the Homeless Council, National Homelessness Law Center and the National Low Income Housing Coalition offer some steps to help people experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless during the COVID-19 pandemic:



In addition, the National Alliance to End Homelessness, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, National Low Income Housing Coalition, and National Health Care for the Homeless Council have developed The Framework for an Equitable COVID-19 Homelessness Response. This offers suggestions for immediate, short-term, long-term, and longer-term actions for unsheltered people, shelter, housing, prevention and diversion, and strengthening systems for the future.
