State Funded Housing Assistance Programs

Many states have established state funded programs to address the affordable housing crisis among people with disabilities or people who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness. This report presents findings of a review conducted by TAC of state funded rental assistance and homelessness prevention programs across the U.S. for people with mental illness or other disabilities. The report identifies several characteristics of programs that can be useful as a resource for states considering the development or modification of existing state funded programs. Some of the challenges associated with developing and administering state funded programs are highlighted as well. Profiles of state programs are also included. (2014)
