Promoting PSH Production through Incentive Grants

The Charles and Helen Schwab Foundation created the Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) Production Incentive Grants initiative with the goal of producing a positive impact on the pipeline of permanent supportive housing units being developed for families in the Bay Area. The challenge in crafting this program was to find an approach that could take modest resources; compared to the cost of developing and operating supportive housing; and make a difference within this larger context. This report evaluates the success of the program in meeting its goals, assesses how the use of the grant funds contributed to successes and where it fell short, and provides recommendations for foundations who are considering grant making in this area.
