Initiative 3: supportive housing and supported employment

Initiative 3 will make supportive housing and supported employment services Medicaid-reimbursable for those who are most vulnerable and have complex care needs.

What services will the demonstration pay for?

Supportive Housing

This new benefit will pay for supportive services that help people get and keep housing. It will not pay for room and board.

Supported Employment

This new benefit will provide ongoing services and support, such as job coaching and training, employer relations, and placement assistance. It will not pay wages.

How can stakeholders learn more?

Materials from a day-long training on using Medicaid to provide these types of services are available on the Washington Low-Income Housing Alliance website.

Are stakeholders involved?

The Chronic Homeless and Olmstead policy academies continue to provide input on the development of our supportive housing and supported employment benefits.
