The Missouri Department of Mental Health offers a rental subsidy through the Supportive Community Living (SCL) program. Through a network of contract providers, the Supportive Community Living Program places persons with disabilities into permanent housing. The units are subsidized through a housing voucher modeled on the Federal Section 8 housing voucher program. Each year, approximately 3,000 adults participate in the SCL program. Participants contribute 30% of their income towards housing, and must be on waiting lists for federally subsidized assistance. Access is limited to those individuals with serious mental illnesses (SMI).
Funding Description: The SCL program is funded through state General Revenue, renewed annually. Funding currently is approximately $14 million for FY14 and FY15.
