The Homelessness Resource Center Web site is just one of SAMHSA’s homelessness-related initiatives.
Other major efforts include the following:

  • Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness. This initiative funds comprehensive community-based services for people who are homeless and have serious mental illnesses or co-occurring substance use disorders. Services include outreach, mental health treatment, substance abuse treatment, case management and other support services, plus limited housing services.

  • Services in Supportive Housing Initiative. This initiative provides support and technical assistance to nine grantees providing services to people who are chronically homeless, have serious psychiatric conditions or co-occurring disorders, and live in permanent supportive housing.

  • Grants To Benefit Homeless Individuals. This grant program helps communities expand and strengthen treatment services for individuals who are homeless and have mental illness, substance abuse disorders, or both.
