This is the February 2, 2022 hearing on "Housing America: Addressing Challenges in Serving People Experiencing Homelessness," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Housing, Community Development, and Insurance of the Committee on Financial Services. From the opening statement of Emanuel Cleaver: "Homelessness in the United States is an unnecessary and worsening crisis. According to HUD [United States Department of Housing and Urban Development], between 2016 and 2020, homelessness increased in the richest nation on the planet by 6 percent, with more than 580,000 people, including children, experiencing homelessness in January of 2020. The significant economic instability brought by COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019], and reports of crises from homeless service providers on the front lines have only heightened concerns about conditions facing homeless and at-risk populations. In every congressional district in the country, homeless service providers have worked tirelessly to benefit those communities. It is without question that these service providers are heroes and that the work they do saves American lives."
