This national center provides high-quality, no-cost training for health and housing professionals in evidence-based practices that contributes to housing stability, recovery, and an end to homelessness.

This project is designed to develop a suite of stakeholder-informed resources to support the integration of youth engagement strategies in federal agencies and federally funded programs.

This training and technical assistance program delivers the crisis intervention training (CIT) model, developed by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, to law enforcement agencies, along with a suite of resources and technical assistance. The program goal is to improve law enforcement’s response and interaction with individuals with mental illness, thereby increasing officer and community safety.

This national project is designed to increase access to the disability income benefit programs (SSI/SSDI) administered by the Social Security Administration for eligible adults who are experiencing or at-risk of homelessness and have a mental illness, medical impairment, and/or a co-occurring substance use disorder.

This national project is designed to expand access to community-based services for adults diagnosed with co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders at all points of contact with the justice system.

This national project is designed to help state and territory teams develop and implement strategic plans to strengthen behavioral health systems for service members, veterans, and their families.

This project aims to improve life opportunities for youth by advancing policy and practice improvements that ensure the well-being of youth, families, and communities.

This national training and technical assistance program is designed to support case managers across all of the Veterans Integrated Service Networks (VISN) to successfully assist Veterans who are homeless, and their families, access and sustain housing via the collaborative U.S. Departments of Housing and Urban Development and Veterans Administration Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program.

The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation’s Safety and Justice Challenge—Serious Mental Illness Technical Assistance contract provides intensive technical assistance to the selected Safety and Justice Challenge jurisdictions that have targeted initiatives for individuals with Serious Mental Illness.

The Analyzing Relationships between Disability, Rehabilitation and Work (ARDRAW) Small Grant Program is a one-year $10,000 stipend program awarded to graduate-level students to conduct supervised independent research designed to foster new analysis of work, rehabilitation, and disability issues.

Localities, organizations, communities, and states can work with PRA and its network of national experts to identify high-priority needs and develop strategies to transform systems and improve outcomes.
