Abstract

This paper describes and assesses the housing component of The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Program on Mental Illness, an attempt to test the effects of increasing the supply of affordable, permanent housing available to those with chronic mental illness. Four features of the organization and delivery of independent housing are examined: (1) the structure of the housing development entity; (2) linkages between the housing and mental health systems; (3) targeting of tenant applicants for independent housing; and (4) special issues in providing housing assistance to the homeless mentally ill.
