Funding for this program was allocated to DSH in two parts. The first allocation is available for draw down until June 30, 2027, and the second allocation will be available for draw down until June 30, 2028. Contracts for this program will be for five years and all funds must be drawn down within that timeframe. DSH and AHP will work with counties to ensure the first allocation is utilized prior to the second allocation. The intent behind this one-time only grant opportunity is to expeditiously develop housing options that address the current statewide deficit of approximately 5,000 beds and to build bed capacity that does not exist. Please state your proposed completion date in each of your project application so that it may be considered.
