The Reaching Home Campaign has developed a guide to assist public housing authorities (PHAs) in Connecticut interested in planning and implementing a project-based Housing Choice Voucher program for supportive housing. The guide provides information on:
- planning such a program,
- Public Housing Agency Plan and Administrative Plan components, and
- the steps necessary to comply with HUD program requirements related to such factors as selection of supportive housing projects, preferences, waiting list rules, housing assistance payment (HAP) contracts, required reviews prior to entering into a HAP contract, site selection standards, and occupancy rules.
This guide was undertaken by the Opening Doors-Connecticut Affordable and Supportive Housing Workgroup.
Additional resources will be provided (templates, examples of documents, etc.) throughout the Fall of 2015 at:
Further resources can also be found using the Corporation for Supportive Housing's PHA Toolkit: http://www.csh.org/phatoolkit.
Please note that PHAs with questions regarding the project-basing of Housing Choice Vouchers for supportive housing should contact the HUD Hartford Field Office, Division of Public Housing for technical assistance.
