In addition to coordination at the local level, Fresno has received technical assistance and in some cases, has been designated a high-priority city as part of initiatives aimed to preventing and ending homelessness. These opportunities for the community provide access to expertise throughout the country as well as best practices in policy and service delivery.

United States Interagency Council on Homelessness

Opening Doors: The nation’s first comprehensive strategy to prevent and end homelessness The plan puts us on a path to end Veterans and chronic homelessness by 2015; and to ending homelessness among children, families, and youth by 2020.

Dedicating Opportunities to End Homelessness: The initiative is a joint effort by HUD and the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness to help communities match their homeless supports with other mainstream resources such as housing choice vouchers, public housing, private multifamily housing units, and other federally funded services. The initiative is beginning in 10 critically important communities: Atlanta, Chicago, Fresno County, Los Angeles County, Houston, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Phoenix/Maricopa County, Seattle, and Tampa.
