Through the Collaborative Housing program, the Housing Authority subsidizes affordable housing that is owned by non-profit agencies that provide supportive services to residents. The subsidies come through what are called Project-Based Vouchers.
Project-based Vouchers are long-term funding commitments that stay with the housing units and, unlike tenant-based Vouchers, do not transfer if a tenant leaves. However, once the tenant has completed at least one year of successful tenancy, he or she will be eligible for a mover tenant-based Voucher as soon as one is available.
The Housing Authority annually invests about $2.5 Million to subsidize operating costs of the Collaborative Housing properties. This program has fostered the development and maintenance of 475 supportive housing units in our community
Most of these properties have specific eligibility criteria and serve special-needs populations. If you meet the criteria and would benefit from these services, you may be eligible for the project’s waiting list. The waiting lists are managed by the Housing Authority or through the Coordinated Entry system as noted below.
