The homeless problem is a stain on America’s promise. It is everywhere, but most assuredly, out of control in many of our great cities. We need to invest in innovative models that are working. We need to renovate federal property and land to create more housing. We need lower interest rates for more first time home owners to free up rentals. We need incentives for developers to build more affordable housing. We need to partner with local governments to support more temporary housing and opportunities to match those without housing to jobs that provide livable wages. Finally, we need to attend to the mental health of too many homeless on our streets.
