Supportive Housing Guidelines

These Guidelines apply to the operation of permanent supportive housing units funded by the NYS Office of Mental Health (OMH) either through direct contract or through Local Government Unit (LGU) contracts.

Supportive Housing settings include scattered-site or single-site developments. They include units developed under OMH’s Supportive Single Room Occupancy (SP-SRO) initiatives or the Empire State Supportive Housing Initiative (ESSHI)

OMH is continuing the bi-weekly technical assistance sessions for providers of supportive housing, SP-SROs, and CR-SROs that opt to receive State Aid for Medicaid-reimbursable Rehabilitative and Tenancy Support Services. This is an open forum for providers to ask questions on a range of topics as services and reporting requirements are implemented in eligible programs.

Sessions will run through the end of April (meeting dates: 4/6 and 4/20) and may be extended* as needed.

*If extended, meetings will continue bi-weekly at 1pm.
