Housing Stabilization Services (HSS): A waiver service that helps a person plan for, find and move to his/her own home. It is a pay-for-performance, person-centered service that pays for staff assistance based on the results achieved. A provider is reimbursed for actual time spent helping a person get housing. 


A person can use housing access coordination to move to his or her own home from any of the following settings: 

  • Family or corporate adult foster care homes 

  • Hospitals 

  • Institutions for Mental Diseases (IMD) 

  • Intensive rehabilitation treatment and rule 36 settings 

  • Intermediate care facilities for persons with developmental disabilities (ICF/DD)  

  • Nursing facilities 

  • Registered housing with services establishments (e.g., customized living) 

  • Unlicensed settings (e.g., a person’s own home or family home).  

Own home: 

A person’s own home is a setting that he or she owns, rents or leases that is not operated, owned or leased by a provider of services or supports. The person has full control of his/her housing and choice of service provider. 

Housing access coordination is delivered in four stages:  

  • Plan 

  • Find 

  • Move 

  • Follow-up

Each of the stages includes various supports. The four stages must be delivered in order.  

The first three stages—plan, find and move—include no more than 50 hours (200 units) each. The last stage—follow-up—includes no more than 50 hours (200 units) per year after a move is complete. 


“Case managers can ask for more units for individuals who have a felony record and are experiencing difficulties securing affordable housing in the community.”
