This chapter presents two large-scale governmental efforts to implement community-level projects to improve the availability of and access to housing and support services for homeless people with severe mental illness; the federally supported Access to Community Care and Effective Services and Supports (ACCESS Project) and the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness’s (USICH) Ten-Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness. The chapter presents the outcome of the ACCESS Project, and the development, implementation, and outcome of the Ten-Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness. Case studies of Ten-Year Plans in five American cities—Portland, San Francisco, Houston, Salt Lake City, and Washington, D.C.—are presented. Characteristics of successful strategies are discussed.
