The Social Security Administration (SSA) has a long history of providing service to the American public, including people who are homeless, by assuring they have full access to the programs that SSA administers. SSA is committed to increasing access to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for people experiencing homelessness, and accomplishes the objectives of their Homeless Plan by participating in the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness and collaborating with other federal partners on several initiatives. In fiscal year (FY) 2003, Congress appropriated $8 million for SSA to provide outreach and application assistance to homeless and other underserved populations. In September 2003, SSA announced the availability of cooperative agreement funds for homeless outreach projects and evaluation for FY 2003. SSA anticipates funding for approximately 30 projects, with awards of up to $200,000 in the first year of project funding, to be awarded in the second quarter of FY 2004. The goal of the cooperative agreements is to demonstrate efficient, replicable and sustainable approaches for identifying individuals who are potentially eligible for benefits under the Social Security disability program, and to provide direct assistance to these individuals in the benefit application process.
