New York State Supportive Housing Program (NYSSHP) 2011-2012
Appropriation Level: $508,000
NYSSHP provides services to residents of supportive housing. Services are designed to assist residents in achieving housing stability and to prevent entry into the homeless services system. NYSSHP funds support activities designed to promote greater independence and housing stability including, academic attainment, employability and/or mental/physical health stability. NYSSHP eligible families are those who are eligible for benefits under the State Plan for the Federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) Program whose incomes do not exceed 200 percent (200%) of the federal poverty level and, unless in receipt of public assistance, whose participation in such a program would not constitute “assistance” under the Federal TANF regulations. In addition, households must be in need of supportive housing and accompanying services which promote housing retention and self-sufficiency. Eligible families include homeless families, families at risk of exceeding and those that have exceeded their TANF assistance time limit, families with multiple barriers to employment and housing stability, families at risk of foster care placement of their children, and/or those that are reunited after foster care placement.
