National Goal To End Homelessness Among Veterans
“(b)Reaffirmation of Encouragement of Cooperative Efforts.—
Congress reaffirms its encouragement, as specified in the Homeless Veterans Comprehensive Assistance Act of 2001 (Public Law 107–95; 115 Stat. 903), that all departments and agencies of the Federal, State, and local governments, quasi-governmental organizations, private and public sector entities, including community-based organizations, faith-based organizations, and individuals, work cooperatively to end chronic homelessness among veterans.”
Congress hereby declares it to be a national goal to end chronic homelessness among veterans within a decade of the enactment of this Act [Dec. 21, 2001].
“(b)Cooperative Efforts Encouraged.—
Congress hereby encourages all departments and agencies of Federal, State, and local governments, quasi-governmental organizations, private and public sector entities, including community-based organizations, faith-based organizations, and individuals to work cooperatively to end chronic homelessness among veterans within a decade.”
Sense of the Congress Regarding the Needs of Homeless Veterans and the Responsibility of Federal Agencies
“It is the sense of the Congress that—
while many effective programs assist homeless veterans to again become productive and self-sufficient members of society, current resources provided to such programs and other activities that assist homeless veterans are inadequate to provide all needed essential services, assistance, and support to homeless veterans;
the most effective programs for the assistance of homeless veterans should be identified and expanded;
federally funded programs for homeless veterans should be held accountable for achieving clearly defined results;
Federal efforts to assist homeless veterans should include prevention of homelessness; and
Evaluation Centers for Homeless Veterans Programs
