Congress established the Interagency Council on Homelessness in 1987 with the passage
of the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act. The Council is responsible for
providing Federal leadership for activities to assist homeless families and individuals.
The actions needed to carry out the policies and priorities established by the Council
are developed by a policy-level working group and various task forces with the assistance
of Council staff. The policy group provides a forum for coordinating policies and
programs, developing special initiatives, and preparing recommendations for consideration
by the full Council.
