Transitional Housing Program
The Transitional Housing Program (THP) is funded by the Minnesota Legislature to provide transitional housing for homeless individuals and families and facilitate long-term independent living. THP funds can be used for the operation, administration and supportive services costs (including follow-up) associated with the provision of transitional housing. Funds will be used to assist people who are ready to move beyond being homeless into a more independent living situation. Households will receive a rent subsidy as well as monthly case management services for up to 24 months in a leased apartment facility of their choice.
Transitional housing is a program that assists families and individuals through the provision of housing and supportive services to attain and maintain permanent housing. Transitional housing residents:
- Pay at least 25% of their income for rent.
- Are required to work with program staff to accomplish goals set forth in a mutually agreed upon housing independence plan.
- Length of stay is limited to 24 months.
- Are eligible for up to six months of follow-up services, including but not limited to, permanent housing placement costs, crisis assistance, and case management.
