Inherency- Obama has already Solved

Aff is non - inherent- the Congress has already taken comprehensive steps to alleviate homelessness


Congress today approved U.S. Senator Jack Reed's (D-RI) bill to help communities reduce homelessness nationwide. The Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing (HEARTH) Act of 2009 (S. 808) will provide $2.2 billion for targeted homelessness assistance grant programs; increase current levels of funding for homelessness assistance grants by $600 million; and allocate up to $440 million for homelessness prevention initiatives. It also expands the definition of homelessness in order to help families on the verge of becoming homeless and reauthorizes federal homelessness aid programs for the first time since 1989. "I am pleased that Congress has approved this legislation with bipartisan support and I look forward to having President Obama sign it into law. This bill will make a real difference in preventing more families from becoming homeless and allowing local communities to assist families in need. This bill invests $2.2 billion for targeted homelessness assistance grants and provides communities with greater flexibility to spend the money on programs that have a proven track record of success," said Reed, a senior member of the Banking Committee, which oversees federal housing policy. "This is a wise use of federal resources that will save taxpayers money in the long run by preventing homelessness, promoting the development of permanent supportive housing, and optimizing self-sufficiency." The HEARTH Act seeks to address this growing problem by reauthorizing the landmark McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act of 1987. It would simplify and consolidate three competitive U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) homelessness assistance programs into one program and allow more funding to flow to communities that can demonstrate a commitment to accomplishing the goals of preventing and ending homelessness. It would also: * Allow up to 20% of funds or up to $440 million dollars to be used to for homeless prevention initiatives. This new "Emergency Solutions Grant" program would allow cities and towns to serve people who are about to be evicted, live in severely overcrowded housing, or otherwise live in an unstable situation that puts them at risk of homelessness. * Require HUD to provide incentives for communities to implement proven strategies to significantly reduce homelessness. * Provide local communities with greater flexibility to spend money on preventing homelessness. * Expand the definition of homelessness, which determines eligibility for much of the homeless assistance funding, to include people who will lose their housing in 14 days (current practice is 7 days) and people fleeing or attempting to flee domestic violence, or other dangerous or life threatening situations.
The reauthorized McKinney-Vento act will solve homelessness

Shannon Moriarty- staff writer for May 20, 2009- Congress Passes the HEARTH Act, Obama Expected to Sign Today- Online-

Today, President Obama is expected to sign into law a comprehensive housing bill that reauthorizes HUD's McKinney-Vento program and contains the HEARTH Act. The bill, S. 896, overwhelmingly passed by Congress yesterday, will significantly increase the support available for homeless families and individuals. While note perfect (which we'll delve into that in future posts), the bill acknowledges the realities of modern homelessness in America better than any homeless legislation to date. Here are a few of the highlights of the bill: * Increases priority on homeless families with children, by providing new resources for rapid re-housing programs, designating funding to permanently house families, and ensuring that families are included in the chronic homelessness initiative. * Significantly increases resources to prevent homelessness for people who are at risk of homelessness, doubled up, living in hotels, or in other precarious housing situations through the Emergency Solutions Grant program. * Continues to provide incentives for developing permanent supportive housing and provides dedicated funding for permanent housing renewals. * Grants rural communities greater flexibility in utilizing McKinney funds. * Modestly expands the definition of homelessness to include people who are losing their housing in the next 14 days and who lack resources or support networks to obtain housing, as well as families and youth who are persistently unstable and lack independent housing and will continue to do so.
