CMS Releases Report to Congress on State Strategies to Provide Housing Related Supports to Individuals with SUD in Medicaid

​In accordance with Section 1017 of the SUPPORT Act, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has compiled a report to Congress on Innovative State Initiatives and Strategies for Providing Housing-Related Services and Supports under a State Medicaid Program to Individuals with Substance Use Disorders (SUD) who are Experiencing or at Risk of Experiencing Homelessness.

This report shows how five selected states (Arizona, California, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Washington) and other state and local programs tested and implemented a variety of approaches to address housing stability needs and improve treatment outcomes.

These initiatives and strategies primarily focused on:
  • Providing housing-related supports that facilitate access to community resources;
  • Sharing data across systems to identify and target those most in need for those resources; and
  • Partnership building across state and local health and housing systems and providers.
The full report is available at here
