As a result of mounting evidence from around the country that housing first is cost effective and decreases the incidence of chronic homelessness, the Massachusetts Legislature passed line-item 4406-3010 in the FY07 state budget to fund a statewide pilot housing first program for 130 chronically homeless individuals. The state allocated $600,000 to MHSA through the Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) to operate the program, known as Home and Healthy for Good (HHG). This resource is to be used to fund a portion of the service or housing components for program participants, with the expectation that federal or other state resources would be leveraged to finance additional needed service or facilities funds.
