HHS and HUD Launch New Housing and Services Resource Center
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) are expanding their partnership and launching a national Housing and Services Resource Center (HSRC) to improve access to affordable housing and the critical services that make community living possible.
The new resource center will help implement a federally-coordinated approach for providing resources, program guidance, training, and technical assistance to the following entities:
- Public housing authorities and housing providers;
- State Medicaid, disability, aging, and behavioral health agencies;
- The aging and disability networks;
- Homeless services organizations and networks;
- Health care systems and providers; and
- Tribal organizations.
The Housing and Services Resource Center brings together – for the first time – a wide variety of federal resources and guidance on both housing and services that support community living. It will serve as a platform for new webinars, new technical assistance, peer-to-peer learning, and a learning collaborative.
Within HHS, this partnership is led by the Administration for Community Living (ACL) and includes the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE).
