Recovery Housing Program launched

Posted On: November 30, 2020

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson hopes the Recovery Housing Program will “remove the stigma associated with substance-use disorder.”

HUD announced the Pilot in a Notice last week. The goal of the Recovery Housing Program is to provide temporary yet stable housing to people recovering from a substance use disorder.

“HUD’s Recovery Housing Program is bringing new funding and new partners to the fight against the opioid crisis, broadening the spectrum of collaboration among federal, state and local governments and nonprofits and faith-based communities,” Secretary Carson said last week.

The program will fund 25 grants in 24 states and the District of Columbia. HUD picked these states because the “age-adjusted rate of drug overdose deaths was above the national overdose mortality rate.”

Twenty-four states plus the District of Columbia will receive funding in the Pilot.

Section 8701 of the Support for Patients and Communities (SUPPORT) Act authorized the Pilot. It helps the grantees “provide stable, transitional housing for individuals in recovery from a substance-use disorder.”

The funding covers up to two years or until the resident secures permanent housing- whichever comes first.
