Subcontracting Opportunity: Planning and Financial Modeling to Inform Housing Tenancy Supports Implementation


CSH is seeking an Illinois BEP-certified subcontractor(s) to support efforts in cost analysis, financial modeling, and planning for housing tenancy/pre-tenancy supports. This project will be focused on individuals who are homeless and at risk for institutional care or those who have transitioned from a nursing home to supportive housing. The work will include analyzing aggregate/de-identified data and reports managed by CSH, reviewing 1115 Waiver ACIS rates, and conducting key stakeholder interviews, focus groups, and/or surveys, in order to gather data directly from service provider organizations.

Planned activities:

  1. Review previous reports and data collected to inform planning focus groups, survey, or interviews.
  2. Prepare financial modeling and a cost analysis summary for housing tenancy/pre-tenancy supports for community mental health clinic agencies serving Williams class members.
  3. Using the qualitative and quantitative data collected, summarize implications for services and tenant choice as well as financial forecasting for mental health agencies that currently provide housing location services and/or tenancy supports in planning for or transitioning to the 1115 ACIS pilot.

Expected Outcomes, Milestones, and Deliverables:

Deliverable 1: Complete qualitative and quantitate data collection to understand the current cost of housing navigation services, and understand if the current funding mechanism has impacts on those services; including quality issues, caseload size, tenant choice, and ability of tenants to successfully location housing in their area of choice.

Deliverable 2: Prepare financial modeling and a cost analysis summary pertaining to the Illinois 1115 waiver ACIS pilot implementation. It is anticipated that planning for the ACIS pilot will begin in 2019, with project deliverable timeline to be determined in the scope of work.

Funding Available:

An amount not to exceed $6,780 available for this project in FY 19. Through the contracting process, specific dates for deliverables will be identified and agreed upon.
