HOMELESSNESS POLICY RESEARCH INSTITUTE
Established with support from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and the Home For Good Funders Collaborative, the Homelessness Policy Research Institute (HPRI) is a county-wide effort that includes over 30 scholars and policymakers coming together to convene and collaborate on research to end homelessness in Los Angeles County. HPRI focuses on four primary activities:
- Foster collaboration and coordination among researchers focused on homelessness in the Los Angeles region.
- Share current and upcoming research with policymakers and community partners to inform on-the-ground work.
- Conduct rapid-response policy research to inform policy and program design.
- Assist in developing and coordinating requests for proposals for homelessness research relevant to Los Angeles
HPRI is proud to operate in conjunction with USC’s Initiative to Eliminate Homelessness, which seeks to expand university resources to fight homelessness in Los Angeles County.
