The Coordinated Housing Options and Individualized Services (CHOIS) program provides rental assistance and case management services to homeless and disabled individuals and families. The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and operated by the Ada County Housing Authority in collaboration with several community agencies. Participants pay 30% of their income towards rent and utilities and receive on-going supportive services.

What are the main requirements in order to qualify for this program?

To be eligible, you must be literally homeless, i.e. be living on the streets or in an emergency shelter, and you must have a disability.

How do you apply for this program?

Applicants for the CHOIS program must be referred to the program through Ada County’s Coordinated Entry System, otherwise known as “Our Path Home Connect.” If you are experiencing homelessness, you may contact (208) 336-HOME (4663) and a staff member will conduct a brief survey to develop a plan to help access housing for you as quickly as possible.
