Congress established the Interagency Council on Homelessness (ICH) in 1987 with the passage of the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act. In 1993, the Interagency Council on Homelessness was reorganized as a working group of the White House Domestic Policy Council. ICH provides Federal leadership for activities to assist families and individuals who are homeless. Major activities of the Council include the following: planning and coordinating the Federal government’s actions and programs to assist people who are homeless and making or recommending policy changes to improve such assistance; monitoring and evaluating assistance provided by all levels of government and the private sector to people who are homeless; ensuring that technical assistance is provided to help community and other organizations effectively assist people who are homeless; and disseminating information on Federal resources available to assist people who are homeless.
