On June 10, 2013, HUD issued PIH Notice 2013-15 (HA)
to provide Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) with strategies for documenting and housing individuals and families experiencing homelessness through the Housing Choice Voucher program and Public Housing. This guidance builds on the lessons learned from two convenings held last year by HUD’s Offices of Public and Indian Housing (PIH) and Community Planning and Development (CPD) and the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness to address the goals of Opening Doors: Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness.
In follow up to this Notice, Secretary Donovan and Assistant Secretary Sandra Henriquez sent a letter to PHA Executive Directors encouraging them to reach out to CoCs and other homeless service providers to explore ways to collaborate and forge partnerships to increase progress towards ending homelessness.

SNAPS will be participating in a series of webinars later this summer with HUD’s Office of Public and Indian Housing (PIH) to provide CoCs and PHAs with additional information and guidance on ways to engage. CoCs and homeless service providers are encouraged to review the Notice and related materials.
