The OSAH program provides operating funding to Homeless Housing and Assistance Program (HHAP) projects that house homeless and/or formerly homeless individuals and/or families living with HIV/AIDS. Funding for the program is used for costs associated with personnel, supplies, utilities, consultants, travel, equipment, contractual obligations, maintenance needs and rental subsidies, OSAH funding also allows for recreational activities, tutoring for school aged children, substance abuse counseling and greater awareness of how good nutrition improves the quality of life.
The OSAH program is unique in that it provides operational funding to nonprofit service providers, which is strongly needed in the current fiscal climate. Consistent with OTDA’s mission to assist individuals with priority needs other than work-readiness in accessing appropriate benefits and services, OSAH nonprofit contractors provide comprehensive support services to individuals and/or families living with HIV/AIDS. Contractors providing these services to the target population experience high costs associated with operations. OSAH funding allows them to meet the special support services needs of residents, and cover maintenance and operating expenses. Funding provided through the OSAH program will also greatly improve the long-term viability of these HHAP projects.
