Measure Title: RELATING TO HOMELESSNESS.
Report Title: Homeless Shelters; Requirements
Description: Defines emergency shelter to mean a homeless facility designed to provide temporary shelter and services to homeless families or individuals. Allows homeless shelter stipends to be adjusted at the end of each year based upon achievement of performance measures. Requires homeless shelters to have no fewer than one shower, one sink, and one toilet per twenty-five residents and the minimum area of each partitioned space to be determined by the number of residents and capacity of the shelter. Authorizes, rather than mandates, that emergency shelters have partitioned space for each homeless family or individual that provides separation from other homeless families or individuals in the shelter. Establishes that the storage space at a homeless shelter shall be determined by each shelter's space availability. Removes DHS's authority to require shelters to comply with additional requirements.
