(This amendment adds $4,900,000 in additional funding in fiscal year 2018 to expand permanent supportive housing (PSH) for individuals with serious mental illness. PSH is an evidence-based program that provides supportive services and rental subsidies to allow individuals with serious mental illness to live in the community and prevent unnecessary hospitalizations, homelessness, or interactions with the criminal justice system. In addition to the program funding, $100,000 from the general fund is provided in a separate amendment to support one position to oversee the program. This amendment is a recommendation of the Senate Joint Resolution 47 Joint Subcommittee to Study Mental Health Services in the Twenty-First Century.)
