LTH Service Providers

Long-term homelessness (LTH) service providers work with people who have experienced homelessness so that they can maintain permanent housing in site-based and scattered site housing settings.

Supportive Housing Definitions

The state of Minnesota has specific definitions for supportive housing that must be considered by all providers of supportive housing.

  • Households Experiencing Long Term Homelessness - Persons including "individuals, unaccompanied youth, and families with children lacking a permanent place to live continuously for a year or more or at least four times in the past three years. Any period of institutionalization or incarceration shall be excluded when determining the length of time the household has been homeless."

  • Permanent Supportive Housing - "Permanent rental housing affordable to the population served where support services are available to residents. Permanent supportive housing is available to individuals and families with multiple barriers to obtaining and maintaining housing, including those who are formally homeless or at risk of homelessness and those with mental illness, substance abuse disorders, and/or HIV/AIDS."
