Leveraging Medicaid: A Guide to Using Medicaid Financing in Supportive Housing

Corporation for Supportive Housing and Technical Assistance Collaborative

July 2008

Medicaid plays a critical role in financing services and supports for many people who need permanent supportive housing. However, because of the complexity of the Medicaid program, supportive housing providers and local and state government agencies are not always able to access these resources systematically. Leveraging Medicaid: A Guide to Using Medicaid Financing in Supportive Housing is a publication from the Technical Assistance Collaborative and the Corporation for Supportive Housing. With the goal of helping to facilitate the use of Medicaid as a source of funding for services in permanent supportive housing, this guide is intended to be a resource for: policymakers, state Medicaid programs, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, health policy leaders, counties, service providers and advocates.
