CSH is seeking Illinois BEP-certified subcontractor(s) to provide expertise in data analysis and strategic planning for housing and service interventions focused on individuals who transitioned from a nursing home to community-based housing or are at-risk for institutional care. The work will include analyzing aggregate/de-identified data and reports managed by CSH in order to identify trends and key findings. In addition, the subcontractor will use the above-mentioned data provided to identify unmet needs and then draft a report with strategies and costs required to meet those needs, allowing more individuals to be served in the community instead of institutional setting.
- Review previous consumer satisfaction survey reports, to be provided by CSH. Summarize opportunity areas, key trends and data to inform strategic planning and deliverables and identify key areas that may need further exploration in tenant focus groups.
- Prepare financial modeling and a cost analysis report for housing tenancy supports using current 132 rate charts, previously completed time studies from non-billing providers and existing grants to better understand true costs and value of tenancy and pre-tenancy supports. This may include interviewing existing DMH providers that receive additional grant funding for housing tenancy services outside of rule 132.
- Use findings and lessons learned from landlord focus groups to create marketing recommendations to better engage rental property owners. Create documents or tools intended for broad distribution within the housing and health provider community.
