Briefly Describe the Purpose of the Program
IHDA’s Permanent Supportive Housing (“PSH”) Development Program was created with the goal of increasing housing options for Illinoisans who either are in need of Permanent Supportive Housing or need reduced barriers to housing. The PSH Development Program is intended to provide a clear process primarily for smaller Projects serving Supportive Housing Populations across the State that pair affordable housing with supportive services. Developments funded by the program serve individuals and families who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, persons living with chronic disabilities and those who are at risk of institutionalization, including those exiting the criminal justice system.
