On behalf of everyone at Tableau, I want to offer heartfelt congratulations to Community Solutions on winning the prestigious MacArthur Foundation’s 100&Change competition. The $100 million grant from MacArthur will enable Community Solutions to deepen and scale its transformative Built for Zero initiative across the country to build a nationwide movement that demonstrates homelessness is solvable.
Imagine that in the next five years, homelessness in communities across America will be on its way to becoming a thing of the past. If someone loses a job and faces eviction because they can’t pay rent, it will become possible to seek assistance and stay in place. If someone also loses their home, they can be rehoused in thirty days or less. Across the entire country, when homelessness occurs, it will hopefully be rare and brief.
