Transition-in-Place (TIP) is a housing model being piloted in the veterans affairs transitional housing program, Grant and Per Diem (GPD). This observational 20-site study compares characteristics and outcomes of 488 clients in TIP and 10,388 clients in traditional GPD programs. TIP participants were younger, better educated, healthier, and reported higher employment income than traditional GPD participants. Adjusting for these differences, TIP participants were more likely to have their own housing and reported higher employment and public support income at program exit, although the differences were small. These results inform use of the TIP model as a public health intervention.
