The Housing Assistance Program helps individuals or families who are homeless, facing eviction, or are unstably housed (living in a hotel, doubled up, sleeping place-to-place, etc.). Applicants selected to participate may receive financial help with move-in expenses, rental and utility arrears, help with creating a housing stability plan (budgeting, referrals to GED classes, technical school, college, or training programs, etc.). Clients will be assisted with applications for disability benefits or mainstream resources and other supportive services, as needed.
- Program participants will be required to pay a portion of their expenses each month, as determined by the MACH program staff.
- Additional eligibility criteria will be discussed with each applicant.
- Referrals are ONLY accepted through Case Managers or other representatives of homeless shelters and community organizations.
- Agency representatives should call 2-1-1 to make the initial referral to the program.
- Clients must be homeless or at risk of homelessness. Click here for the HUD definition of homelessness.
