For enhancing the quality and capacity of local homelessness programs across the U.S. through the Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) project, which, for the first time in U.S. history, collected reliable data to estimate homelessness in the U.S.  This data has provided evidence to inform major policy initiatives, such as the emphasis on permanent supportive housing (PSH) for chronically homeless people, and is enabling local homeless providers to improve program operations.

Also at the federal level, AHAR contributed to the 47% decrease in homelessness among veterans from 2010 to 2016.  AHAR served as the initial vehicle for cooperation between HUD and the VA, which led to coordination of policy and resources at both the federal and local levels.
