Recovery Housing Program Draft Action Plan Now Available to View
 
Federal Register Notice (FR-6225-N-01) implements the pilot Recovery Housing Program (RHP) authorized by the SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act (SUPPORT Act), which was passed in 2018. The intent of RHP is to support individuals in recovery from substance use disorder (SUD) and help them reach self-sufficiency by providing stable, temporary housing. RHP funds may be used to develop or maintain housing for individuals in recovery from SUD. Assistance for individuals is limited to the earlier of two years (cumulative) or until they secure permanent housing.

By providing stable housing to support recovery, RHP aims to support efforts for independent living. More specifically, RHP would provide the funds to help individuals develop or maintain housing. To maximize and leverage these resources, grantees should coordinate RHP-funded projects with other federal and non-federal assistance related to substance use disorder, homelessness and at-risk of homelessness, employment and other wraparound services.
