Gap Analysis & Community Priorities

The Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness (ACEH) is pleased to share our inaugural Homeless Prevention and Response System Gap Analysis and 2021 Community Priorities. Below you will find the culmination of over a year of data work and tremendous commitment from our Advisory Council during these unprecedented times.

The Homeless Prevention and Response System Gap Analysis & 2021 Community Priorities was created by ACEH’s Advisory Council and includes two main components. The Gap Analysis represents a supply and demand analysis of the existing system based on local data and the subject matter expertise of those with lived experience, community leaders and organizations on the front line providing these services citywide. The 2021 Community Priorities are the goals identified to reduce system gaps in the coming year. These goals are intended to summarize for community members, funders, policy-makers, and advocates, recommendations around collective action to address identified gaps in the Homeless Prevention and Response System. The ACEH 2021 Community Priorities are designed to be used to direct programmatic, policy, and funding decisions to achieve our shared goals of making homelessness rare, brief, and one-time.
