Created by consolidating multiple programs, the State of Maryland’s Homelessness Solutions Program administers federal and state resources to local service providers. Under the restructured program, access to funding was streamlined and its eligible uses were expanded which significantly contributed to a 9.5% decrease in homelessness in Maryland since 2017. The program also encourages strong cooperation with local partners, which proved important in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
