#05-43-ELI: Housing Stability Plus Program
The HSP program is a housing supplement program that will provide eligible public assistance (PA) participants residing in shelter facilities (e.g., shelters administered by the Department of Homeless Services [DHS], Human Resources Administration Domestic Violence [HRA DV] and Housing Preservation and Development [HPD]) and families being reunited with child(ren) in foster care the opportunity to find suitable permanent housing and receive financial assistance to help pay the rent in the form of a rent supplement (see Attachment 1). To encourage self-sufficiency, the rent supplement will last for a period of five years and will be reduced automatically each year by 20 percent after the first 12 months in the program. Further, continued receipt of the rent supplement requires compliance with all public assistance requirements, including employment requirements.

With the implementation of HSP, other rental supplement programs such as Employment Incentive Housing Program (EIHP), Long-Term Stayers Program (LTSP) and Emergency Assistance Rehousing Program (EARP) ceased accepting new applications; however, participants already participating in these programs will maintain their eligibility as long as the requirements for the specific program continue to be met.
