The Community Supportive Housing program provides flexible funding to agencies to provide supported housing for adults who are diagnosed with mental illness and co-occurring disorders. As part of the support services provided, the staff is hired by contract agencies to provide on-site supervision for the residents and as-needed supervision to non-supervised group homes and apartments. Staff members also coordinate outside activities for the residents and work one-on-one to develop a housing plan that identifies the individual’s ideal housing goal and the steps needed to achieve more independent living. Depending on facility needs, these funds can also cover other program expenses such as utilities, food, transportation, etc.

Licensed Supportive Living facilities in 11 counties are eligible to apply for $2.00/day support per eligible individual for up to 30% of eligible residents at each facility. The purpose is to help maintain the financial viability and, therefore, availability of these housing opportunities for people with a history of mental illness or co-occurring disorders that, in most cases, do not receive support from other sources except resident rent. Because facility and individual resident eligibility change month to month, funding is distributed through a Departmental Purchase Authority rather than contracts with individual agencies. This program is mandated by TCA 12-4-330 and receives an annual designated Legislative appropriation.

Without this funding, the quality of life for residents of these facilities would be reduced; in some cases, this might cause the facility to close. In those cases, some residents can be expected to become homeless, become involved with the criminal justice system, or require inpatient psychiatric hospitalization at much greater public cost.

Funds distributed via Departmental Purchase Authority in the following counties: Dyer, Davidson, Hamilton, Hardeman, Knox, Lincoln, Madison, Obion, Shelby, Warren, and Wilson.
