HUD Announces SOAR Technical Assistance Available for CoCs


The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access and Recovery (SOAR) Technical Assistance Center is accepting applications from Continuums of Care (CoCs) that have not yet participated in the federally sponsored SOAR Technical Assistance Program.
SAMHSA’s SOAR Program assists states and localities to expedite access to the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) disability programs – Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) – for persons who are experiencing or at risk for homelessness and who have a mental illness, a co-occurring substance use disorder, or other serious medical condition.
CoCs that would like to participate must submit a brief, 3-5 page application describing how it will meet the 8 requirements, included in this memo from Pamela Fischer, PhD, Social Science Analyst in the Homeless Programs Branch in the Center for Mental Health Services at SAMHSA. Applications are due by February 5, 2016. This opportunity is available only to those CoCs that have not yet participated in the federally sponsored SOAR Technical Assistance Program and only one application per CoC will be accepted.
For more information, or if you have questions about the Request for Application (RFA), please contact Kristin Lupfer, Project Director, SAMHSA SOAR Technical Assistance Center via e-mail at klupfer@prainc.com or by phone at (518) 439-7415, ext. 5262.
