APPLICATIONS DUE: April 9, 2015, 11:50 p.m., Eastern Time

Description:

The goal of the CABHI-States-Enhancement program is to ensure, through state and local planning and service delivery, that individuals who experience chronic homelessness and have substance use disorders, SMI, or co-occurring mental and substance use disorders, and/or veterans who experience homelessness/chronic homelessness and have substance use disorders, SMI, or co-occurring mental and substance use disorders (hereinafter referred to as “population(s) of focus”) receive access to sustainable permanent supportive housing, treatment, recovery supports, and Medicaid and other mainstream benefits.  To achieve this goal, SAMHSA will continue to support three primary types of activities:

  1. Build upon the current statewide plan to enhance sustained partnerships across public health and housing systems that will result in short- and long-term strategies to support those experiencing homelessness who have behavioral health issues.
  2. Expand delivery of behavioral health, housing support, peer, and other recovery-oriented services.
  3. Enhance and/or expand assistance to the state Medicaid eligibility agency in developing a streamlined application process for the population(s) of focus and assistance to providers (e.g., alcohol and drug treatment facilities, homeless service providers) seeking to become qualified Medicaid providers; to engage and enroll eligible persons constituting the population(s) of focus in Medicaid and other mainstream benefit programs (e.g., SSI/SSDI, TANF, SNAP).
