PATH Essentials
The PATH program is administered by the Center for Mental Health Services, a component of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The PATH Program was authorized by the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless Assistance Amendments Act of 1990.

PATH is a formula grant to the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. There are over 480 local organizations that receive PATH funds.

There is currently one national PATH workgroup. The PATH Administrative Workgroup (AWG) informs SAMHSA on administrative issues and developed the PATH Definitions. It is made up of State PATH Contacts. In addition, consumer providers from PATH programs around the country participate in a Consumer/Peer Workgroup, as part of SAMHSA’s Homeless Programs.
