Rental Assistance

The nationwide shortage of targeted, affordable rental housing opportunities is one of the most critical challenges faced by federal, state, and local policymakers. In recent years, states and communities have worked to match limited rental assistance resources with the disabled and homeless households that face the greatest housing barriers and have the most significant supportive service needs. Such efforts have resulted in Move On initiatives, Olmstead-related preferences, and other innovative strategies.
