Grant Programs

The grant programs offered by the Boise City/Ada County Housing Authority are designed to provide housing assistance and supportive services for local homeless families and individuals. Tenants receive supportive services that help address the reasons for their homelessness, which may include mental illnesses, disabilities, or fleeing from domestic violence. The goals of the program are to assist tenants to increase their skills and/or income, and residential stability.

SHP- Stewart B. McKinney Supportive Housing Programs

The Supportive Housing Programs are designed to provide housing and services that will allow homeless persons to live as independently as possible. Grants under the Supportive Housing Program are awarded through a national competition held annually under the Boise City/Ada County Continuum of Care. SHP programs offer Transitional and Permanent housing programs to local homeless families, and chronically homeless individuals.

Shelter Plus Care Program (S+C)

The Shelter Plus Care Program provides tenant-based rental assistance to homeless persons with disabilities (primarily those with serious mental illness, and/or chronic substance abuse issues). The program is designed to provide housing and supportive services to participants on a long-term basis. The services for the program are funded by other Federal, State, or local resources, as well as private sources.

Transitional Housing for Victims of Domestic Violence

The Transitional Housing program is a federally funded grant designed to provide temporary housing for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and/or stalking. The program also provides services to participants which may include case management, mental health counseling, transportation, and support groups. These services are provided under a contract by a local service provider.

HOME Tenant-Based Rental Assistance

The federal HOME program is a block grant funding source made through HUD, and is then distributed through an annual application process through the City of Boise’s Housing and Community Development Division. The BC/ACHA’s HOME program is designed to provide temporary housing assistance and services to chronically homeless veterans within Boise City. Participants are provided services to address the reasons for homelessness, by a local service provider.
