Must be "chronically homeless" as defined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development:, literally homeless, permanently disabled (mental or physical), and homeless for at least one year in the past three years. Case management also necessary for program participation.
Permanent Supportive Housing is primarily directed to serving the needs of households consisting of a single, disabled, homeless person but also serves homeless households where the head of household is disabled. The program provides rent support and requires that the qualifying participant receive ongoing case management services from either the referring agency or a social service agency. Additionally, a self-sufficiency plan is developed with specific goals to assist members of the household toward self-sufficiency. Households must have verifiable income to be eligible.
