The National Low Income Housing Coalition is providing this data as a public service. NLIHC will continue to update the database. The accuracy of the data is based on information provided by the programs' administrators and user submissions.
The Supportive Housing Program (MHP-SH) focuses on the construction and rehabilitation of supportive housing projects for individuals with special needs. The program emphasizes serving homeless persons with disabilities. Through the program, developers of supportive housing can access low-interest loans. The loans must be used for permanent financing, including social service facilities on-site. Eligible developers must set aside at least five units, or 35% of units, for supportive housing and must provide supportive services.
Funding is provided by the Housing and Emergency Shelter Trust Fund Act of 2006, also known as Proposition 1C, which authorized issuing bonds for low income housing programs. Proposition 1C issued a $2.85 billion bond for affordable housing and infrastructure in 2006. Of this amount, the Supportive Housing Program (MHP-SH) received $188 million.
