Medicaid and Permanent Supportive Housing for Chronically Homeless Individuals: Literature Synthesis and Environmental Scan
This report from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services provides a literature review demonstrating that providing permanent supportive housing to reduce the number of chronically homeless people helps to avoid public costs for crisis health services, corrections and other public services. Permanent supportive housing also improves the individual's health and other aspects of their lives. This report also previews the ways Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act in 2014 will affect access and funding for this population.
