Overview
The Mayor’s Committee will begin meeting in June 2006 following Mayor Tussing’s charge to develop a 10-Year Plan to address the needs of the chronically homeless in Billings. The Mayor’s Committee includes representation from a broad stakeholder group including housing / service providers, civic / business leaders, economic / work force agencies, faith based / philanthropy groups, and other interested parties. To date, over 200 cities across the nation have committed to implementing 10-Year Plans to end chronic homelessness.
 
The City of Billings is committed to inclusive participation in the effort to address chronic homelessness. Work Groups will be established to assist the Committee in gathering feedback and developing specific sections of the 10-Year Plan. These groups include, but are not limited to:
  • Service providers
  • Consumers
  • Business consortium
