The plan was released by the Council on Housing Stability on Friday.

It includes a three-year framework to specifically address homelessness across the state, with emphasis on the need for an increase in inventory of affordable housing.

Recommendations include promoting new housing development; reducing barriers to affordable housing; and using a data-driven approach to understand regional needs.
