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)
