Grants to New Hampshire housing providers to support individuals with mental health illnesses who are transitioning out of inpatient hospital care. Funding is intended to provide transitional housing and related services to adult patients who have severe mental illness or severe persistent illness. Adults receiving services are those who are eligible for community mental health services and no longer meet the level of care provided by New Hampshire Hospital or Designated Receiving Facilities.

The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (Department) is seeking to fund up to twenty-two (22) transitional housing beds, statewide, with preference given to vendors who can provide:

  • One (1) or more Transitional Housing bed(s) in Mental Health Region 2;
  • One (1) or more Transitional Housing bed(s) in Mental Health Region 3;
  • One (1) or more Transitional Housing bed(s) in Mental Health Region 5;
  • One (1) or more Transitional Housing bed(s) in Mental Health Region 7; or
  • One (1) or more Transitional Housing bed(s) in Mental Health Region 8.

In an effort to foster successful transitions for individuals ready for discharge from NHH or a DRF, the Department is soliciting proposals to ensure the availability of Transitional Housing Programs. This is a greatly needed and paramount service that supports individuals as they transition out of inpatient care to pursue their recovery goals.
