MISSISSIPPI DEPARTMENT OF MENTAL HEALTH
TAC assisted the Mississippi Department of Mental Health to develop a statewide integrated supportive housing strategy for people with mental illness, intellectual and developmental disabilities, Veterans and other high need populations in the state. As part of this process, TAC convened a strategic planning committee to discuss and identify the challenges and barriers to the availability of supportive housing, and to make recommendations for an organized, statewide supportive housing strategy. TAC also reviewed available sources of information pertaining to federal, state and local resources and affordable housing policy in Mississippi, as well as approaches that other states have taken to organize management of supportive housing resources for people with disabilities and other target populations. This resulted in a series of recommendations for the state to consider in meeting the integrated supportive housing needs of people with disabilities and other priority populations.
