Congress is currently considering another supplemental appropriations package (funding)  to address the COVID-19 pandemic. The National Alliance to End Homelessness is working with Congress to include funds that would meet the needs of homeless people and support the organizations and community structures that help them.  We need your input. 
 
The survey below will help us gather feedback so that we can ask for the proper and most needed resources, and help us make an urgent and compelling case to Congress. Your feedback is invaluable, so we hope that you can take a few moments today to let us know what is needed in your community.  You can either respond to the questions below, or simply tell us your most important short, medium and long range needs. 
 
Thank you for all you are doing.
