Chattanooga Housing Authority & homeless program team up to provide 150 housing vouchers
The Chattanooga Housing Authority (CHA) and City of Chattanooga are teaming up to give housing vouchers to homeless people.
Thanks to the partnership, CHA says they're making available up to 150 vouchers, which can be used by participating landlords in the county to offset the costs of monthly housing rentals.
CHA says the city is adding seven new housing navigators and case managers, making access to vouchers easier.
According to the CHA, homeless individuals and families will be referred by the Chattanooga Homeless Coalition’s Coordinated Entry System as well as from the City of Chattanooga’s Homeless Services Program.
"Working with CHA, we believe these vouchers will provide opportunities to greatly diminish homelessness in the city," says Sam Wolfe, the city's homeless program coordinator.
"This partnership will result in many moving from homelessness to hopefulness for their futures,” says CHA Executive Director Elizabeth McCright.
