Homelessness Policy Research Institute

The newly launched Homelessness Policy Research Institute convenes researchers and policymakers to help design and coordinate timely, relevant, and actionable research to end homelessness in Los Angeles County. The Homelessness Policy Research Institute is a partnership between the USC Price Center for Social Innovation and the United Way of Greater Los Angeles Home for Good Initiative.

HOMELESSNESS POLICY RESEARCH INSTITUTE

Established with a leadership gift from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and support from 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 three 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.
  • Identify research priorities and opportunities for collaboration on rapid-response policy research.

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.
