The purpose of this policy analysis is to analyze the Homeless Emergency Assistance Rapid Transition to Housing ACT (HEARTH) of 2009 implemented by President Obama, that made an amendment to the McKinney Vento ACT. This policy was analyzed using research articles as well as the actual public law. Additional sources used were books, journal articles, government agency documents and publications, and law reviews regarding homelessness and the HEARTH ACT. A thorough examination of the ACT provided an understanding of who benefits from the ACT and what additional resources were made available due to the passing of the ACT. This analysis also examines the effects of the policy on the target populations as well as Continuums of Care. Theoretical perspectives that aim to explain the underpinning of homelessness policies were explored . This analysis focused on the HEARTH ACT’s effectiveness towards ending homelessness and the impact of redefining homelessness.
