The Supportive Services for the Emergency Housing Voucher (EHV) Program provides supportive services to households enrolled in the EHV program. The EHV program provides tenant based rental assistance to households referred to the Public Housing Agency (PHA) by the local Continuum of Care (CoC) Coordinated Entry (CE) system. Households will be considered eligible for the EHV program if they meet one of the following criteria:
- At risk of homelessness;
- Fleeing, or attempting to flee, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking; or
- Recently homeless and for whom providing rental assistance will prevent the family’s homelessness or having high risk of housing instability.
IHCDA partnered with the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) Division of Mental Health and Addiction (DMHA) to provide funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Mental Health Block Grant (MHBG) to make supportive services available to persons that have an EHV and have been diagnosed with a serious mental illness (SMI) or serious emotional disturbance (SED). Eligible supportive services through the MHBG funding include outreach and in-reach services, applying for insurance, mental health services, life skills training, referral to legal services, and SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery (SOAR) application.
IHCDA has also allocated HOME Investment Partnerships Program – American Rescue Plan (HOME-ARP) Supportive Services to ensure that all households with an EHV are offered a comprehensive set of supportive services that promote long-term housing stability. Eligible supportive services include childcare, education services, employment assistance and job training, food, housing search and counseling services, legal services, life skills training, mental health services, outpatient health services, outreach services, substance abuse treatment services, transportation, case management, mediation, credit repair, landlord/ tenant liaison, services for special populations (such as victim services), and financial assistance costs.
