Critical Time Intervention/Rapid Re-housing Pilot
In February of 2017, Connecticut rapid re-housing providers embarked on a pilot to implement Critical Time Intervention (CTI) as a strategy to guide case management and prepare families and individuals for independence. Directed by the National Alliance to End Homelessness with key training and guidance from the Center for the Advancement of CTI (CACTI) at Hunter College, CUNY, this pilot program involves all DOH-funded rapid re-housing programs in the state.
