Select Committee on Homelessness & Housing Affordability

The Select Committee on Homelessness and Housing Affordability will redefine the Council's approach to coordinating and communicating to the public about the city's homelessness response. While the Council has made progress with standing committees that oversee the Human Services Department in defining outcomes and reporting and executing a plan, the public demands more.

With that in mind, the Select Committee on Homelessness and Housing Affordability is a new and more centralized approach focused on the homelessness issue through a committee comprised of all nine Councilmembers. The Select Committee will be a transparent working committee that develops strong policy and investment decisions, as well as enforcement strategies.
