The National Coalition for the Homeless is a subcontractor to many consultants in an attempt to assist in the Federal agencies in hearing the voices of those impacted by homelessness with a series of Technical Assistance (TA) subcontracts. These include pandemic and post pandemic strategies for helping those without housing. These individuals help craft language and policies to serve the best interest of those living without housing in the United States. In California, NCH is working to create racial equity standards for housing and homeless social service providers. In addition, we are working to improve the conditions within shelter across the United States with our experts who have years of experience living in homeless shelters.
