Comments Off on Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) Program
The Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) Program provides long-term housing with supportive services for homeless persons with disabilities by reintegrating chronically homeless and other highly vulnerable homeless families and individuals into the community by addressing their basic needs for housing and providing ongoing support. Newcap holds the lease on the unit and sublets the unit to the program participant. The program participant pays 30% of their monthly adjusted income back to Newcap as occupancy fees.
Family must meet HUDs definition of homeless and income must be at or below 30% of the County Median Income. Clients must have a disability. Use our eligibility calculator to find out if you may be eligible for this program.
Applicants should contact Newcap’s Oconto office for an assessment to determine preliminary eligibility. Once initial eligibility is determined, the applicant is placed on the Prioritization List and offered assistance when a housing program becomes available. Applicants are placed on the Prioritization List by the length of time homeless and the severity of their need.
