A new report aims to explain how public housing authorities (PHAs) currently serve homeless households with mainstream housing assistance resources. The U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development Office of Policy Development and Research released a Study of PHAs’ Efforts to Serve People Experiencing Homelessness. Among its many findings, the report found that while only 24 percent of all PHAs were attempting to serve people experiencing homelessness, larger PHAs were more likely to make an effort to serve people experience homelessness than smaller PHAs.

Data was collected from PHAs throughout 2012 and early 2013 using two approaches: a Web-based survey of roughly 4,000 PHAs and follow-up telephone discussions with staff at 120 PHAs.
