A cornerstone effort of the increased focus on chronic homelessness was the development of the Collaborative Initiative to Help End Chronic Homelessness (CICH), an innovative demonstration project coordinated by the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) and jointly funded by the Departments of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Health and Human Services [HHS (SAMHSA and HRSA)] and Veterans Affairs (VA). Recognizing that homelessness is an issue that cuts across various agencies in the federal government, this unique effort across Departments offered permanent housing and supportive service funding through a consolidated application process. The evaluation of the CICH is supported by HHS (Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation), VA, and HUD, and is being conducted by the VA's Northeast Program Evaluation Center.
Initiated in 2003, this jointly funded demonstration focused on improving outcomes for chronically homeless individuals by making funding available to support 11 communities working to integrate housing and treatment services for disabled individuals who have experienced long-term and/or repeated homelessness.
The three major interim reports listed below are currently available as well as a summary of these reports. Additional reports will be posted on this website as they become available.
