Vote YES: Portman/Feinstein Amendment Number 271

Mar 17, 2015


Homeless children and youth are extremely vulnerable and at risk of becoming victims of human and sex trafficking. It is critical that all resources be made available to support these young people. Yet different definitions of homelessness across a range of federal programs create bureaucratic hassle for young people at a time of tremendous need.

By improving the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD’s) definition of homelessness to synchronize it with other federal definitions of homelessness—as proposed by Portman/Feinstein amendment number 271—vulnerable children will be eligible for the services they need from HUD.
