In 2009, IHCDA reorganized its Inter-Agency Council into the “Indiana Planning Council on the Homeless.” The Council was established as an overall planning body for initiatives aimed at ending homeless in Indiana, and is committed to using a comprehensive approach to develop, operate, and improve Indiana’s continuum of homelessness solutions. The Council operates from a “housing first” philosophy and embraces the proven efficacy of a permanent supportive housing model.
The Council intends to engage a broad range of systems and expertise within the housing field. The Council and its subcommittees will include members from both the public and private sector, IHCDA’s sister state agencies, homelessness service providers, the academic realm, and homelessness advocacy organizations- along with formerly homeless representatives. The activity of the Council will be driven by its four action-oriented sub-committees, focused respectively on ‘Data Collection and Evaluation,’ ‘Quality and Performance,’ ‘Housing and Program Continuum Development,’ and ‘Funding and Strategies.’ The value of the Council will lie in the anticipated exchange and collaboration amongst these four subcommittees as they progress on coordinated work plans. The committees will come together quarterly as the full “Planning Council” to share information, updates, and discussion.
