Permanent supportive housing programs have the potential to be a key strategy for improving health outcomes for individuals experiencing homelessness while simultaneously reducing medical and societal costs. In partnership with stakeholders in the housing sector, state Medicaid agencies and safety net providers are critical partners in ensuring these services are available and accessible to individuals who need them. This webinar showcased how state Medicaid agencies in New York and California have leveraged different federal authorities and delivery systems, including Health Homes and DSRIP 1115 waivers, to increase access to supportive housing services and discuss important implementation considerations.

This webinar is supported through a cooperative agreement with the Health Resources and Services Administration.
