The first Tuesday of each month from 4-6 pm Arizona time, except for holiday weekends, ACMI will have a featured guest that will discuss a relevant Behavioral Health topic; after the speaker, we will have discussions with attendees on current issues with the Behavioral Health System.

Housing in Arizona for SMI & GMH/SA- What are the plans for the H2O waiver implementation? AHCCCS plans for Housing

David Bridge is the Special Needs Program Administrator for the Arizona Department of Housing. He will talk about the H2O waiver which addresses housing for homeless and General Mental Health/ Substance Use (GMH/SU) and Serious Mental Illness (SMI) members. Also, what is the H2O waiver? Alex Demyan, Interim Assistant Director, Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), and Elizabeth da Costa, Housing Program Administrator, Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) will answer questions that were pre-submitted:

  • What are the goals for this H2O waiver?
  • Can you talk about what the current need is for housing units of various types?
  • Can you talk about the current and predicted number of vouchers?
  • How is Hom Inc related to this initiative, will they manage the transitional housing as well?
  • How will people waiting for housing be prioritized for housing?  
  • What is the plan to get the people Permanent supportive housing (PSH) after the six months of transitional housing ends?
  • If someone gets six months of transitional housing and then does not get PSH are they again eligible if they become homeless for another six months of transitional housing?

This is an important topic as we believe housing is an essential part of healthcare.
