NCSL’s Housing and Homelessness Legislation Database tracks filed bills in the 50 states, District of Columbia and U.S. territories. Numerous subtopics are grouped by (1) safe, stable, healthy and affordable housing, (2) adult and family homelessness and (3) youth homelessness.
Bill information for the current year is updated weekly. Search for passed, pending and failed legislation from 2019 - 2022 by state, year, topic, keyword, status and/or primary sponsor. If searching by bill number, please only include the numerical bill information. For example, type “100” instead of “AK H 100.”
To find information related to COVID-19, select “Adult and Family Homelessness-Emergency Response,” “Youth Homelessness-Emergency Response” and/or “Housing-Emergency Response.”
Bills may appear twice in carry-over states. In these states, check the last date of action to verify the status of the bill reflects the appropriate year.
