HHS – CABHI-States (2014)

Description: The major goal of the CABHI-States program is to ensure, through state and local planning and service delivery, that veterans who experience homelessness or chronic homelessness, and other individuals (non-veterans) who experience chronic homelessness (hereinafter collectively referred to as “population of focus”) receive access to sustainable permanent housing, treatment, recovery supports, and Medicaid and other mainstream benefits.  To achieve this goal, SAMHSA funds will support three primary types of activities:

  • Enhancement or development of a statewide plan to ensure sustained partnerships across public health and housing systems that will result in short- and long-term strategies to support individuals (including veterans) who experience chronic homelessness and veterans who experience homelessness.
  • Delivery of behavioral health, housing support, peer, and other recovery-oriented services.
  • Assist the state Medicaid eligibility agency in developing a streamlined application process for the population of focus and assist providers (e.g., alcohol and drug treatment facilities, homeless service providers) seeking to become qualified Medicaid providers; engage and enroll eligible persons constituting the population of focus in Medicaid and other mainstream benefit programs (e.g., SSI/SSDI, TANF, SNAP).
