Permanent Supportive Housing

Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) Program:

The objective of the PSH Program is to expand the state's supply of affordable housing designed to serve households experiencing chronic homelessness.

PSH Projects must:

  • Utilize project-based rental assistance to ensure PSH units are deeply and sustainably affordable for households with little to no income.
  • Offer on-site comprehensive tenancy support services that are voluntary for residents.

The PSH Program at OHCS offers 3 funding components, all accessed through the State's Affordable Rental Housing NOFA Application process:

  1. PSH Capital for the development of PSH Projects
  2. PSH Project-Based Rental Assistance to allow for long-term, deep affordability for households experiencing chronic homelessness
  3. PSH Services Funding to operate a long-term PSH Services program on site for all PSH households

PSH Units must serve households earning at or below 60% County Area Median Income (AMI) and are chronically homeless based on a region's CoC definition of “chronically homeless". PSH Projects must also utilize their region's Coordinated Entry system to identify residents for PSH units. All PSH Projects must complete the Oregon Supportive Housing Institute put on by our partners, Corporation for Supportive Housing.
