HRA Implementation Project

About the project

Crisis secured funding to support and monitor the successful implementation of the Homelessness Reduction Act (HRA). This includes providing targeted support to five local authorities and research with six to assess the Act's implementation. This site is primarily for the practice work with the five but will include updates from the research where relevant.

We are committed to working openly and making this a project everyone can use by blogging regularly, sharing outputs and anything else that might be useful. For more information about the project and how we intend to use this site, read our first blog.

We are always keen to collaborate, hear feedback or have a conversation so please contact Joe Kane-Smith or Lisa Naylor who are leading the project. To receive email updates when a new blog is posted, use the sign up form at the bottom of this page.

COVID-19 Update: Please use and share the transition planning toolkit we've developed to support the sector during the next phase of the pandemic.
