Housing Subsidies-

Shalom House administers Shelter Plus Care grants from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Bridging Rental Assistance Program for the Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) across the state of Maine.  These programs provide rental assistance to individuals with very low income in the state who have severe and persistent mental illnesses and co-occurring disorders, and other disabilities for Shelter Plus Care.
