(This amendment provides $6.5 million from the general fund the second year to fund 500 additional new permanent supportive housing units. The annual cost of each unit is approximately $13,000. Under the introduced budget, the agency will fund approximately 2,600 units. In a recent discussion at the Subcommittee to Study Mental Health Services in the Commonwealth in the 21st Century, it was determined that Virginia needs 5,000 supportive housing units to address individuals with serious mental illness who are in crisis.)
