Grants to USA nonprofits and IHEs to determine financing frameworks for supportive housing programs for homeless individuals who have frequent contact with homeless services, the criminal justice system, and health care systems. Applicants will pilot test the chosen program model to determine framework feasibility and effectiveness.
Specifically, the objectives of the PFS Demonstration are to:
(1) Pilot test the PFS model operated by an intermediary to learn whether the financing approach is feasible to fund a PSH delivery initiative.
(2) Create an opportunity for communities to increase the availability of PSH for the target population, ultimately through a high-quality PFS-finance project.
(3) Determine whether PSH provided for the target population will reduce recidivism and chronic homelessness.
(4) Determine if a PFS-finance PSH Intervention can achieve taxpayer savings and/or improve cost-effectiveness by decreasing government spending on corrections systems, homeless services, Medicaid, and crisis services that are significant enough: (a) to justify the use of a PFS framework; and (b) to ultimately cover the cost of scaling to other jurisdictions (in addition to a return to investors if future scaling occurs with PFS financing).
(5) Identify lessons learned and best practices on the feasibility of scaling-up and replicating effective PSH and service delivery interventions in other cities, with and/or without federal funding and technical support.
