NC DHHS Permanent Supportive Housing

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services provides eligible adults living with disabilities and/or experiencing homelessness the opportunity to attain and maintain integrated, affordable housing with flexible tenancy supports. The overarching purpose of the various NCDHHS permanent supportive housing programs is to help prevent inappropriate institutionalization and to provide adequate and appropriate services and supports identified through person centered planning in the most integrated setting appropriate to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities, currently receiving or eligible for DHHS-funded services at the state and local levels, who are either experiencing homelessness, currently residing in congregate settings or at-risk of entry into these settings.. This housing model helps rebuild lives, offers hope, and provides critical stability for individuals and families.

NCDHHS Strategic Housing Plan
