Direct Funding to Counties for Homeless Mentally Ill Outreach and Treatment Program Now Available
The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) has released their Application for One-Time Funding: Homeless Mentally Ill Outreach and Treatment Program (HMIOT). The application was released to County Administrative Officers earlier this week with an application deadline of September 25.
HMIOT was established to provide a one-time funding for county activities targeting individuals with serious mental illness who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. The noncompetitive one-time funding is available to all counties that wish to apply. Counties are encouraged to leverage this funding with other funding sources and initiatives. Applications must include a letter of interest and a Board of Supervisors Resolution. CSAC has developed a sample resolution for counties to use as part of the application process.
Please visit the CSAC Homelessness Resource page for the application and sample resolution.
