Frequent Users System Engagement (FUSE), a new housing program in Bloomington, IL, will kick off early next year. The program's initial goals are to focus on a dozen of its most frequent users of services and significantly increase the amount of supportive housing units. Edith Brady-Lunny explains ways in which FUSE will be funded through sales taxes, Medicaid, and the Pay for Success program; and also realize savings through a reduction in emergency room and jail stays.
