CT Team Awarded $800,000 from CSH for Supportive Housing/Healthcare Project


The Connecticut AIDS Resource Coalition (CARC) in collaboration with the Partnership for Strong Communities’ Reaching Home Campaign has been awarded an $800,000 two-year match grant from the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) Social Innovation Fund. 

The grant will fund a project called Connecticut Integrated Healthcare & Housing Neighborhoods which will further integrate supportive housing as a central solution to ending chronic homelessness and create a health home outreach model linking primary care, behavioral healthcare and supportive housing.  The project will support 150 tenants, identifying individuals who meet the program criteria using a data match between the State’s Medicaid administrative data and Homeless Management Information Systems. The grant will fund “patient navigators” and “systems coordinators” in 5 regions of the state who will aid effective service integration and care coordination between primary health, behavioral health and supportive housing.

CSH awarded a total of $2.8 million to 4 teams out of 33 that applied to the grant program throughout the United States. These 4 teams will work with CSH to create solutions that link supportive housing and healthcare to improve the health of and to reduce public health costs for individuals with the most medical need.

CARC has released a press release about the award.
