Homeless Services Reform Act (HSRA)

The Homeless Services Reform Act (HSRA) was originally passed in 2005 to address the problem of homelessness, the standards by which the District of Columbia and homeless services providers deliver services to clients, and to revise the procedures for resolving disputes between clients and providers of homeless services.  The HSRA was amended in 2017 to reflect industry best practices on preventing homelessness and to focus on connecting those who are homeless to permanent housing.
