Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness (PATH)

The Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness (PATH) program is a federal formula grant distributed to each state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The PATH Program supports the delivery of outreach and services to individuals who are homeless and diagnosed with a serious mental illness.

In North Dakota, the Behavioral Health Division within the North Dakota Department of Human Services administers the PATH Program with services provided by the regional human service centers.

PATH services are available to those who meet the following:

  • Are diagnosed with a serious mental illness, or
  • Are diagnosed with a co-occurring serious mental illness and substance use disorder, and
  • Are homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless.

PATH services are available statewide through the Department of Human Services’ regional human service centers.
