Homeless Children and Youth Act of 2019
This bill modifies definitions relating to homeless individuals and homeless children or youth as used by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to verify eligibility for HUD homeless assistance programs and to align them with the definitions of "homeless" used to verify eligibility for other federal assistance programs. The definitions are amended to increase access to federal homeless programs by homeless children, youth, and families.
The community-wide homeless management information system shall be made publicly available on HUD's website.
