CSH is seeking eligible and qualified non-profit organizations or teams of non-profit organizations to implement models of supportive housing linked to coordinated primary and behavioral health services targeted towards low-income men and women experiencing homelessness and who are high-utilizers of publicly-funded emergency health services.

Selected recipients of CSH’s Social Innovation Fund (SIF) grant funds and their implemented models will be part of a national effort to demonstrate that models of integrated housing, care management, and health services are effective in improving health care and health outcomes while reducing avoidable hospitalizations, emergency room visits, and emergency/crisis health services (and attendant public costs) among homeless, high-cost frequent users of health services.
This new national demonstration program and funding opportunity is made possible through a Social Innovation Fund grant CSH received from the Corporation for National and Community Service, along with additional grant support CSH is receiving from its foundation partners. With these combined grant funds, CSH will award a total of $2.8 million in subgrants over two years to between four and twelve subgrantees located within four states or local jurisdictions.
Subgrants will range in size from $100,000 to $500,000 per year for two years, with eligibility to renew the grant annually for three additional years based on performance and availability of funding. Larger grants will be awarded to larger-scale programs (i.e. those that can serve and house a larger number of individuals than the minimum required target goal of 100 individuals), and those that hold greater potential for scaling beyond the grant period. Subgrantees will be required to match their subgrant awards on a dollar-for-dollar basis in cash with eligible non-federal matching funds.
