Campaign Releases Issue Brief and Interview on Veteran Advocates as Housing Advocates

The Opportunity Starts at Home multi-sector affordable homes campaign released a new issue brief and interview on the affordable housing needs for veterans. The issue brief and interview further make the case that veteran advocates are housing advocates. Veterans need access to good affordable housing so that they can thrive in the very neighborhoods they swore to defend. The brief explores the statistics on veteran homelessness, the history of policies addressing veteran homelessness, and the need for better policy solutions to reduce veteran homelessness.

The campaign also released an interview on veteran homelessness with Claudia Solari, senior research associate in the Metropolitan Housing and Communities Policy Center at the Urban Institute. Dr. Solari and her colleagues recently published two reports related to veteran homelessness. The interview examines difficulties in accessing quality data on veteran homelessness, efforts to eliminate veteran homelessness, and policy solutions to reduce veteran homelessness.
