Reduce homelessness through the creation of permanent supportive housingProvides funding to help develop new permanent supportive housing to house chronically homeless persons across the Commonwealth.

In addition to affordability, existing state programs and local social services agencies and behavioral health agencies will provide services. This funding is consistent with the Homeless Outcomes Advisory Committee's recommendations.
