Federal, State and Local Policy Work

CSH works to integrate supportive housing into federal, state and local policies and funding.

Our Federal and State Policy Priorities

CSH urges policy-makers to prioritize sound, cost-effective public policies that:

  • Preserve and increase key investments in housing programs
  • Expand investments in targeted interventions employing data and evidence-based solutions
  • Refine programs to spur innovation and increase flexibility, and transparency with accountability

We will be working with all Members of the Administration, Congress and state and local policymakers to:

  • Preserve and Enhance Key Investments in Subsidized Rental Assistance and Low-income Housing
  • Enact Tax Reform and Financing to Expand Investment in Supportive Housing
  • Increase Flexibility and Funding for States and Counties to Embrace Keeping Families Together in Supportive Housing
  • Provide Flexibility and Incentives for Enhanced State Medicaid Services, Mental Health and Substance Use Investments
  • Ensure Health Coverage Continues for All Eligible Medicaid Recipients and Encourage Innovation
  • Expand Investments in Outcome-Based Financing Models and Tools
  • Support Investments that Advance Justice Reform, Especially for Youth
