A pilot initiative, the Bridge Subsidy program is a partnership between the Arizona Department of Health Services and the Arizona Department of Housing. The purpose of the program is to expand the supply of permanent supportive housing for individuals with serious mental illness enrolled in the public behavioral health system. The program provides permanent housing linked to services, modeled on the federal Section 8 housing voucher program. Program participants are expected to eventually transition to federal vouchers, for which applicants are required to apply. Tenants pay between 30% and 40% of their income towards rent, and minimum rent policies are not allowed.The program serves 190 households annually.
The Bridge Subsidy Program is funded by state revenue at approximately $8 million annually.
