Housing Issue Brief DHS-3764D summarizes the results of one aspect of the 2015 Survey of Older Minnesotans, conducted by the Minnesota Board on Aging in partnership with the Department of Human Services.
The Homeless Youth Act (HYA) provides definitions for runaway youth, homeless youth, and youth at-risk of homelessness, and defines the continuum of services for youth, including outreach, drop-in services, emergency shelter, and housing. In addition, the HYA affords funding to nonprofits and tribal governments to support the continuum of services. These biennial reports are intended to inform the Minnesota Legislature on the level and nature of needs for homeless youth in Minnesota, provide details on funding decisions and grants made, and give information on outcomes for populations to determine the effectiveness of programs and use of funding.
14 community agencies and counties have been awarded new Housing with Supports for Adults with Serious Mental Illness grants starting in 2020.
The Housing with Supports grants fund agencies to provide supportive services for adults with serious mental illness who are homeless or who are exiting institutions, and who have complex needs and face high barriers to obtaining and maintaining housing.
The new grants will help transition adults with serious mental illness to the new Housing Stabilization Services beginning this summer.
