Supportive Housing Program (SHP)
BHA, as recipient of Supportive Housing Program (SHP) Grant from the United State Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in partnership with Kitsap County Recourses (KCR) offers rental assistance to families who are experiencing homelessness or are at risk of being homeless. Each year 25 families are supported by these funds and are given the opportunity to access case management services designed to promote self-sufficiency.
KCR provides a full range of supportive services to homeless families. Each family is given a personal assessment and a program plan addressing the barriers keeping the family from a stable living environment. The continuum of housing is linked to appropriate social services designed to promote self-sufficiency by gradually increasing levels of responsibility and independence based on personal progress in meeting self- sufficiency goals
The BHA will provide Tenant Based Rental Assistance to families who are referred to BHA by KCR and certified to be homeless (verification of homelessness must meet the HUD final rule governing the CoCC program rule: Literally homeless; Imminent risk of homelessness; Homeless under the Federal Statutes; Fleeing/attempting to a DV situation)
