Program Outcomes

While recognizing that housing is a vast issue area and could take on a myriad of strategies to help families and individuals stay housed, our Program Officers analyze the following outcomes, which were informed by feedback from direct service providers and issue area experts, as a sign of quality services.
The list below is not intended to be an exhaustive list of all outcomes tracked by service providers however are important factors used to evaluate a grant application.
  • Percentage of individuals/families that maintain stable housing
  • Percentage of individuals/families that move to more stable housing
  • Length of time individuals/families maintain stable housing
  • Progress toward achieving stated program goals
