SI KC00520.625 Safe Havens Demonstration Program

A. Background

The Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Act, as amended in 1992 by Public Law 102-550, 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.
