How Can You Help?
The National Low Income Housing Coalition is providing this data as a public service. NLIHC will continue to update the database. The accuracy of the data is based on information provided by the programs' administrators and user submissions.
Supported Housing through the Department of Human Services offers residential placements to consumer residents with diagnoses of serious mental illness. Unless residing at home with family, or in a board and care facility, each consumer resident signs a lease or sublease and receives mental health supportive services from a local mental health provider agency, which can be 24 hours a day, as needed. Assistance can be project-based or tenant-based..
The Supported Housing program is funded through annual state appropriations, and $18 million was spent by the Department of Human Services between February 2013 and February 2014. The amount budgeted to Supported Housing in 2013 was $71,025,470. In 2014, it wass $82,338,082. In 2015, it was $85,825,146.
