Do you or a family suffer from a serious mental illness? Is your household currently on a waiting list for subsidized housing and/or Section 8? This program provides a “bridge” to subsidized housing options. Because there is sometimes a wait for Section 8 Vouchers and/or Public Housing Authority units, this program was designed to provide a housing option for households with serious mental illness. The program is temporary in nature and provides on-going rental assistance to a limited number of households at a time.
