Public and Indian Housing: Preventing and Ending Homelessness


The Office of Public and Indian Housing (PIH) is committed to working with our public housing agency (PHA) partners to expand opportunities for individuals and families to access quality affordable rental homes.

The Department recognizes the importance of ending and preventing homelessness.  This is why the Office of Public and Indian Housing (PIH) and the Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD) have teamed up to develop cross-cutting, cross-programmatic tools and resources to encourage and support our local public housing authorities (PHAs) and Continuums of Care (CoCs) in developing effective partnerships at the community level.

Moving on Strategy

Moving On strategies focus on clients in permanent supportive housing (PSH) who may no longer need or want the intensive services offered but continue to need rental assistance to maintain their housing. This approach relies on partnerships between the Continuum of Care (CoC), PSH providers, and mainstream housing programs, such as Public Housing, the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program, and HUD-funded Multifamily housing providers.
