Services in Supportive Housing Program Applications Due May 22nd

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Mental Health Services is accepting applications for fiscal year (FY) 2007 for Services in Supportive Housing Program grants. The purpose of this program is to help end chronic homelessness by funding services for individuals and families experiencing chronic homelessness in coordination with existing permanent supportive housing programs and resources.

The following three permanent supportive housing programs are eligible to apply:

Previous CHI grantees;
HUD permanent supportive housing programs (Shelter Plus Care, SRO, SHP Permanent Housing, or SHP Safe Haven programs); or
Permanent supportive housing programs funded by non-HUD sources.

According to the National Alliance to End Homelessness “the available funding is limited, about $3 million, and only 8 programs will receive funding but it is a first step toward the Department of Health and Human Services making funds available that are targeted to services in permanent housing programs.”
