The history of the Capital Region Housing Collaborative (formerly the Greater Lansing Homeless Resolution Network).
In 1987, Congress passed the first federal law (The Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act) specifically addressing homelessness. Later renamed the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, this Federal mandate provides financial support for a variety of programs to meet the needs of homeless individuals and families who are homeless. The housing programs authorized through this funding are administered by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs.
