About the subgrant: Feasibility assessment for a Pay for Success structure to supportive housing focused on residents of health care institutions who prefer to live in the community.

The State of New York will be part of a cohort of state governments all interested in the use of the Pay for Success model to provide persons residing in institutional settings with the opportunity to transition to community-based supportive housing. CSH’s work with New York State will focus on providing supportive housing to individuals who have spent at least one hundred and twenty consecutive days in a nursing home setting and who have the ability to live safely in the community. The geography is the State of New York including New York City.

CSH and the Harvard Kennedy School SIB Lab will collaborate to provide a joint cohort-based model of technical assistance. Subgrantees will receive government-focused expertise on SIB development, evaluation design, and SIB procurement from the HKS SIB Lab and issue-specific expertise from CSH and its partners, the Center for Health Care Strategies and Third Sector Capital Partners, including expertise in the areas of Medicaid funding of institutional and community-based services and the creation and operation of high quality supportive housing including the design of service models best suited to meet the needs of the identified target population.

CSH’s Role: In addition to providing technical assistance, CSH is providing the New York State Department of health with a $15,000 subgrant.

“The CSH technical assistance award will allow NYS to advance Governor Cuomo's progressive Olmstead goal of reducing long-stay nursing home individuals by ten percent over five years. This goal complements the Governor’s Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT) reforms which have transformed health care in New York. “- Elizabeth Misa, Deputy Director of Medicaid for New York State.
