Evaluation of the Supplemental Assistance for Facilities to Assist the Homeless Program
The McKinney Act of 1987 authorized the Supplemental Assistance for Facilities to Assist the Homeless (SAFAH) Program to support local homeless programs and projects. Congress intended the program to supplement assistance provided under other federal homeless programs, and to support innovative homeless assistance initiatives. In SAFAH's first two funding rounds, fiscal years 1987 and 1990, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded 65 grants totalling $25.8 million. This study examines the results of those expenditures.
