HB 3246 solves this issue by Defining Site-Specific Supportive Housing as “any housing, whether operated by a service provider, leased by a housing authority, nonprofit housing agency, or private property owner, where:
Services below the level of services offered in residential treatment facilities are provided in accordance with individual resident’s needs or service plans, and
Units reserved for persons with mental illness and/or substance abuse diagnoses comprise 40% or more of the units at the site.”
Require that, at least biennially, LMHAs must submit data on the conduct of operations in site-specific supporting housing facilities in their service area including:
An inventory of services provided at each site
Policies and procedures for medication management and the provision of treatment services
Staffing levels and staff training at each housing facility
Require AMH to review site-specific supportive housing reports and take action as necessary.
