Wednesday, April 24, 2013

If you or someone you know has experienced foreclosure or lost housing due to renting a foreclosed property and you or a household member have a chronic illness, the new Lifelong Housing Safety Net, a partnership with Lifelong AIDS Alliance and Solid Ground, provides free support to households impacted by the foreclosure crisis who also have a family member living with a chronic illness.

For eligible households, Lifelong Housing Safety Net provides financial assistance to help stabilize current housing, as well as an array of support services focusing on future housing and financial stability. Eligible households must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Have experienced foreclosure (or housing loss due to rental in a foreclosed property) in the last 24 months
  • Have a household member living with a diagnosed chronic illness
  • Have household income less than 80% of Area Median Income (which is $5,370/month for a family of four)

In addition to financial assistance, the program provides services that support participants’ stability, health and well-being. Services include but are not limited to:

  • Housing search assistance
  • Housing stabilization support
  • Landlord mediation
  • Education on tenant rights and responsibilities
  • Financial coaching and education
