SOAR helps states and localities better navigate key federal income support programs. These benefits, especially Supplemental Security Income (SSI), can be vital for chronically homeless people who have a mental illness, a co-occurring substance use disorder, or other serious medical condition. Participation in SOAR requires local collaboration with statewide efforts. Currently, all states are participating.
