ABSTRACT

Homelessness and COVID-19 [November 4, 2020]   [open pdf - 1MB]

"People experiencing homelessness may be particularly vulnerable during the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Those living in unsheltered conditions might not have ready access to sanitary facilities. For those living in emergency shelters, it may be difficult to keep a safe distance from other residents, and indoor conditions may more readily facilitate transmission of the virus. [...] This report describes funding available to assist people who are experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless during the COVID-19 pandemic. It also discusses whether homelessness could increase as employment and economic conditions leave households unable to pay their housing costs and federal, state, and court-ordered eviction moratoriums expire."
