Background Information: The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (ODMHAS) received a federal grant to facilitate the development of a statewide plan to ensure sustained partnerships across public health and housing systems and help drive the state toward ending homelessness. OHMHAS and Ohio Development Services Agency (ODSA) serve as the lead staffing agencies tasked with sponsoring and issuing the Statewide Plan to End Homelessness. In turn, ODSA has contracted with the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) Ohio and Barb Poppe and Associates (BPA) to write the report.

Phase I of writing the report involved the collection of data describing Ohio’s current state of homelessness. Phase II, which has just begun, focuses on developing specific, actionable, and achievable strategies
