The updated Housing and Homelessness Action Plan provides a strategy for addressing the issues of affordable housing and homelessness in Niagara from 2019 to 2023. It coordinates efforts to increase access to affordable housing, reduce homelessness, and end chronic homelessness in Niagara.
The vision of the Housing and Homelessness Action Plan is that everyone in Niagara have a home.

Niagara Region can only achieve the goals of the Housing and Homelessness Action Plan by collaborating with non-profit organizations, private sector, other levels of government, and citizens. The updated plan supports community leadership and collaboration through a task force and several working groups related to key areas of work.
Each working group is led by a senior leader from the community with relevant knowledge and expertise, and involves membership from a cross section of service providers and other partners. The working groups include:
Staff from Niagara Region Community Services, Niagara Regional Housing and Planning and Development Services provide support for the working groups.
