Carry forward of housing funding allocation estimated at $900,000 will be used to provide supportive services for households experiencing homelessness as they transition to housing or victims fleeing domestic violence seeking safe housing. This funding will provide a permanent housing opportunity with subsidy support and supportive services. Housing Stability and Supportive Services funding has provided supportive services to over 500 homeless households since 2014 with over a 97% housing stability rate. This funding has been tied to existing subsidies targeted at our community's most vulnerable. Funds were unspent in FY19 due to the lack of additional rental subsidies.
