Definition of Homeless

Postby charteroakadmin » Mon Jun 13, 2011 4:29 pm

Q: I am confused about the definition of homeless. The self-attestation form in the DV Handbook indicates that the participant must meet both parts of a two-part test: lacking a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence; and (2) having a primary nighttime residence that meets any one of three criteria. However, as I read the regulations and Data Collection Handbook, an individual who meets either part of the test is considered homeless. Which is correct?

A: You are reading the regulations and DC Handbook correctly. An individual who meets either standard is considered homeless.
