Housing and Supportive Services Consortium (HSS)

Written by

The Virginia Housing and Supportive Services Consortium (HSS) is an inter-agency collaboration supporting planning for integrated community-based housing opportunities and supportive services for individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (ID/DD). The HSS Consortium includes:

  • Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS)
  • Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD)
  • Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS), and
  • Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA).

On January 7, 2015, the HSS Consortium convened a meeting with regional and state-wide stakeholders to initiate collaborative planning, incuding the regions of Northern Virginia, Hampton Roads, and the Richmond metropolitan area. Additional regional meetings are planned, leading up to a Summit anticipated in May 2015 to achieve and sustain rapid results and increased options for housing and services choice for people with ID/DD.

Ursa Major Consulting is pleased to be supporting the HSS Consortium. We are working witth Catoctin Consulting, Rapid Results Institute, and TAC, Inc. in this effort.
