DOH Issues MRT Supportive Housing Allocation Plan

Bookmark and Share

The Department of Health (DOH) has released the Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT) Supportive Housing Final Allocation Plan.  During MRT Phase 1, $75 million in annual funding was authorized to be spent for supportive housing initiatives to reduce Medicaid spending.  The funding is allocated to 12 different projects to be completed by various state agencies. These investments are intended to help stabilize high-risk New Yorkers with complicated medical, long term care, mental health, and substance use disorder needs.  HANYS convened a Health Reform Taskforce (HRT) Workgroup of members to give input to the MRT on supportive housing issues.  Many of the projects funded by these allocations reflect the principles expressed in HANYS’ HRT comments, such as housing conveniently located to community-based medical and social services, and safe and secure housing for the homeless and those with complex, chronic conditions.  Contact: Debbie LeBarron
