Bridging Rental Assistance Program (BRAP)

About the Program

The BRAP program utilizes a model similar to the Housing First Model, by providing rental assistance to adults with severe and persistent mental illness and co-occurring substance use disorders and then referring these individuals to supportive services in the community based on their needs. BRAP serves individuals leaving psychiatric hospitals, community residential programs, and homeless programs throughout the state. Program participants provide 51% of their income towards rent while the remaining amount is subsidized through the BRAP program.
