Competition for these grants was based on the comparative strength of these communities’ strategies for leveraging Medicaid funds to pay for health care and services as part of the permanent supportive housing model. Funding for these projects come as a result of the “Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013,” a two-year congressional budget agreement negotiated by Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., to expand temporarily the limit on federal spending for fiscal year 2014.
