Community » Homelessness and Supportive Housing The Supportive Housing Program (SHP)

The Supportive Housing Program is a new program that replaced the permanent supportive housing component of the discontinued Homeless Assistance Grant Program. The goal of the program is to provide opportunity for stable, long-term housing for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness through supportive housing operations. The program provides funding for operations (and limited funding for services) in permanent supportive housing and facility-based transitional housing programs.

Eligible applicants may include nonprofit agencies, units of local government, and public housing authorities that provide transitional housing to homeless families and permanent supportive housing for homeless disabled persons.
