L.A. Care Health Plan has committed $20 million to fund an initiative aimed at securing permanent supportive housing (PSH) for individuals experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles County. The grant distributed over the next five years – will be made to Brilliant Corners, a nonprofit supportive housing agency, to support L.A. County's Housing for Health (HfH) program. HfH is operated by the Department of Health Services (DHS) that features intensive case management, linkage to needed services and a housing subsidy. In partnership with safety-net hospitals, HfH staff enroll eligible homeless individuals and link vulnerable Medi-Cal members with permanent supportive housing.
