The Authority has been awarded 906 Emergency Housing Vouchers (EHVs). The Authority is coordinating with the San Francisco Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing (HSH) to implement this program. This gives us an exciting opportunity to move more San Franciscans experiencing and facing homelessness into permanent housing!
EHVs are designed to lease units on the private market, and the Authority will cover a portion of a voucher holder’s rent based on income. The program is referral based, meaning you cannot apply for the EHV program with the Authority. HSH will be responsible for referring eligible families to the Authority.
EHV assistance is limited to families and individuals who meet ONE of the following criteria:
- Currently homeless
- At imminent risk of becoming homeless
- Recently homeless and at high risk of housing instability
- Fleeing or attempting to flee domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking.
