The Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) has just released a nationwide RFP for New Market Tax Credits. They are seeking new projects that combine supportive housing units with primary and behavioral health services.
The type of projects that this RFP is looking for might include:
(1) Community health centers that offer primary care and other healthcare services such as mental health, behavioral health, and/or substance use treatment;
(2) Projects that offer supportive services including social, educational, and/or workforce development services; and
(3) Mixed-use projects that include onsite PSH with the uses above.
More and more health and housing collaborations aimed at improving quality of life for vulnerable populations include the design and development of expanded facilities that increase access to services for the shared client population. Building on the strategies outlined in the Health & Housing Partnerships – Strategic Guidance for Health Centers and Supportive Housing Providers these facility collaborations provide opportunities to leverage resources and enhance care coordination efficiencies. This webinar will highlight the steps necessary to successfully plan, finance and build a shared health and supportive housing facility. Panelists will explore this topic from the perspective of the health provider, housing provider and the considerations of the funders. Capital Link, a HRSA technical assistance provider will present on the webinar with CSH.
