Because available supportive housing is not available to all of the people who need it, the limited 125 housing slots will be allocated by lottery, which is a fair way to allocate the scarce housing resources and also enables random assignment. The evaluation will track outcomes for both groups and attribute any differences to the H2H program intervention. (11) The metrics that will be used in the evaluation to determine whether the outcomes have been achieved as a result of each intervention and how these metrics will be measured: The evaluation metrics will include information on housing stability and reductions in jail days and net reductions in federal expenditures for Medicaid and Medicare claims, to be paid by SIPPRA funding if successful. The net reduction in federal expenditures will be measured as the average difference in the change over time (pre and post randomization) in the amount billed for claims between the treatment and control groups. (12) The estimate of the savings to the Federal, State, and local government, on a program-by-program basis and in the aggregate, if the agreement is entered into and implemented and the outcomes are achieved as a result of each intervention: Federal Savings: $5,512,000 City Savings: $9,235,055 Authority: Public Law 115–123, Division E, Title VIII, 42 U.S.C. 1397n– 1397n–13.
