Toolkit to Combat the Criminalization of Homelessness

Pervasive myths and stereotypes about chronic homelessness have led to the pursuit of 'solutions' - like criminalization - that only exacerbate the problem and lead to more human suffering. That's why we created the Toolkit to Combat the Criminalization of Homelessness. You can access the toolkit in its entirety, or download individual sections and fact sheets here




Medicaid Academy

At the 2016 Conference on Ending Homelessness in Spokane, WA, the Housing Alliance held a day-long training to understand Washington's new Medicaid Transformation Demonstration. 

The pre-conference Medicaid training was intended to provide permanent supportive housing providers and those interested in serving this population with information about the new supportive housing services Medicaid benefit. The training provided background information about the Medicaid program and 1115 waivers, information about what supportive housing services CMS would likely approve to be covered by the new benefit, which Medicaid beneficiaries would be eligible, and what steps your agency needs to take in order to utilize this exciting new opportunity.

Find the program information page here, packed with materials and background information on the new Medicaid benefit.
