The Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) announced last week that it was one of five recipients of the 2011 Social Innovation Fund Award and will be receiving $2.3 million over two years to invest in cutting-edge supportive housing models across the country.
The models funded must be connected to primary and behavioral health care that will improve outcomes and lower costs for vulnerable men and women with complex health needs and housing crises who are the highest-cost users of public services.
CSH will work to match the award dollar-for-dollar. Grants will be made to nonprofits in Los Angeles and three additional communities, which will be selected through a competitive RFP process.
"CSH has always been about creating innovative solutions for community’s toughest problems, and we’re honored to be a part of this exciting venture," said Deborah De Santis, President and CEO of CSH. "With this award, we’ll be able to stimulate real progress in linking services and housing for men and women who have chronic health conditions and have been homeless."
