The Homeless Initiative conducted 18 policy summits in 2015 and 2016 to ensure its strategies had input from diverse stakeholders, including elected officials; County departments and agencies; cities and Councils of Governments; policy experts; service providers; community, business, labor, philanthropy and faith-based organizations; as well as people with lived expertise.

The summits resulted in an action plan with 47 strategies that later expanded to the current set of 51 strategies in an implementation plan approved by the Board of Supervisors in 2017.

Halfway through the 10-year term of Measure H, the Homeless Initiative proposed an updated framework for preventing and addressing homelessness, which the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved in 2022.
