The Supportive Housing Laboratory 2014

With generous support from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, CSH Los Angeles is pleased to announce a new opportunity aimed at enhancing providers’ capacity to develop and operate high quality, well-targeted supportive housing throughout Los Angeles County. The program, the Supportive Housing Laboratory, will support organizations to develop the capacity, internal infrastructure, resources and sustainability to increase the supply of permanent supportive housing in critical regions of Los Angeles County. The Supportive Housing Laboratory will combine grant awards, technical assistance, data collection and analysis and a learning community to achieve this goal.

The invitation to apply to be part of the Supportive Housing Laboratory will be based on passing an initial letter of interest stage and a second stage of organizational assessment. Click here to read the full program announcement and the initial letter of interest requirements.

The emphasis is to develop supportive housing in the following Los Angeles County Service Planning Areas: 1, 3, 6, 7, and 8 (excluding Long Beach). Projects outside of the City of Los Angeles will be considered more competitive.  More information will be provided at the bidders informational sessions scheduled in each of the SPAs in October 2014.
