This interim report summarizes what has been learned about the processes and outcomes of interventions by HPI grantees in the first 21 months of the initiative, from January 2004 through September 2005. To ground our findings, Section One begins with a discussion of the housing, economic, and policy contexts in the U.S. and the state that impact low-income households. This section focuses on the public and nonprofit sectors these households rely upon for help when their housing circumstances are precarious.
Section Two describes the households served by HPI grantees and their varied circumstances. Section Three offers detail on the prevention strategies used by grantee organizations and their collaborating partners. Section Four summarizes the results to date. Section Five highlights intervention strategies uniquely tailored for diverse populations. Section Six summarizes the key learnings to date; Section Seven concludes the report by posing issues for consideration as the final year of the initiative begins.
