New HUD Policy Brief on Housing Choice Vouchers: Understanding the Impact And Potential for Health Centers

The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)’s Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program is a long-standing, critical resource that provides housing stability through rental assistance. With a voucher, individuals and families are able to secure housing, certified by a HUD inspection to meet basic housing quality standards, in the private market. Those working in the front lines of health centers (case managers, social workers, care coordinators, etc.) can be key partners in linking eligible individuals to sustainable, affordable housing and providing health care to HCV participants.

FUSE Tutorial for Health Centers

CSH’s signature FUSE initiative for supportive housing has been implemented in more than 30 communities for people with high needs who are frequently using multiple and costly public systems, such as shelters, hospitals and jails. Many of these local initiatives feature community health centers as key partners playing a variety of roles, from outreach to full service provision. CSH has developed an online virtual training tutorial on how health centers can partner to start FUSE initiatives. This new tutorial features four community profiles that highlight the steps to successful FUSE implementation.
