Boston Mayor Walsh’s Action Plan to End Veteran and Chronic Homelessness in Boston: 2015-2018 calls
for 950 units of permanent supportive housing (PSH) targeted to persons experiencing chronic
homelessness over the next three years in order to end chronic homelessness, citywide. Two-hundred of
these units will be created via development, the balance made available by targeting vacancies in existing
PSH to those assessed as most vulnerable. Boston Department of Neighborhood Development (DND) and
CSH are working together to implement a Moving On Pilot initiative to empower existing tenants of
supportive housing who are ready and eager to move to housing that is more independent.
