DOH Activates Application for Enriched Housing Subsidy

The Department of Health (DOH) has announced that the opportunity to apply for the Enriched Housing Subsidy is now activated on the Health Commerce System (HCS). Operators of Not-For-Profit (NFP) Enriched Housing Programs who provide services to individuals receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits are eligible to participate in this program. The purpose of this program is to enhance the quality of care provided to SSI recipients, improve service delivery to eligible residents, and assist in meeting residents’ needs. Payments made to Enriched Housing operators under this program must be used only for expenditures incurred in providing services to program residents who are recipients of SSI benefits.

The payment amount received by each eligible Program operator will be based on the facility’s number of residents who receive SSI benefits, provided the operator is in compliance with the applicable statutes and regulations. The calendar year’s data will be used to calculate the state fiscal year’s semi-annual payments. Each facility’s resident rosters from three months earlier will be used. Please review the Dear Administrator Letter (DAL) for instructions on how to access the application on the HCS, the Conditions for Participation, and instructions regarding the submission of the rosters.

Applications must be electronically submitted by 5 p.m. on Fri., Sept. 20, 2019. A scanned copy of the Workers Compensation and Disability Insurance Forms must be submitted by this date. Late submissions and/or hard copies will not be accepted.
