Pay for Success Housing First Initiative

Investigator: Maria C. Raven

Location(s): United States


Housing First provides permanent housing to individuals experiencing homelessness, simplifying the process of accessing housing by streamlining the application process and removing unnecessary barriers. In Housing First, tenants have access to a broad range of comprehensive community-based services, though treatment or services are not a requirement of tenancy.  A combination of housing and supportive services is referred to as Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH).
