SI BOS00520.625 Safe Havens Demonstration Program

A. Background

The Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act provides for low-cost housing known as "safe havens" to certain homeless persons. The law provides exceptions to two SSI provisions for demonstration project participants:

  • ineligibility due to residence in a public institution, and

  • chargeable in-kind support and maintenance.

B. Policy

Per SI 00520.625, individuals residing in a safe haven domicile will not be considered residents of a public institution nor be charged in-kind support and maintenance, to the extent that such support is provided as a result of a safe havens demonstration program.

The listing in SI BOS00520.625C. provides the name, residential address and a contact person for each of the HUD funded safe havens in the Boston Region.
