Results of initiative presented at HRSA headquarters in Rockville, MD
On June 27, the grantees of the initiative Building a Medical Home for Multiply Diagnosed HIV-Positive Homeless Populations convened a day-long meeting to present results to staff from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA), and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). They presented the strategies that collectively led to more than 1300 people nationwide being served over the five-year initiative. CAHPP partnered with Boston Health Care for the Homeless to serve as the Evaluation and Technical Assistance Center for the project, known as Med-HEART. Materials from the meeting will be posted over the next several days. To learn more about the initiative, visit the Med-HEART project page.
