Supplemental Homelessness Intervention Program (SHIP) 2007-2008
Appropriation Level: $4,000,000
The SHIP Program assists households that are homeless or at-risk of being homeless with housing location, eviction prevention and aftercare services.
Housing Location refers to the process by which a homeless household is assisted to locate and move into safe and affordable permanent housing. Eviction prevention is designed to address households who are in immediate danger and/or at-risk of being evicted from their homes. Aftercare services are provided to those households referred by the New York City shelter system and are designed to assist those families to remain in the housing they were referred to. Additionally, the SHIP Program optimizes housing stability and self-sufficiency for households through the provision of supportive services, intervention services, and relocation assistance. Households served under the SHIP Program include non-custodial parents, young adults ages 18 to 25, and families who are eligible for benefits under the State TANF plan and have household incomes that do not exceed 200 percent of the poverty level. Although awards are allocated annually, the SHIP Program operates as a five-year contract.
