In addition to the two grants announced during the last news update, Advance Housing has received an additional award for a Residential Intensive Support Team (RIST) in Union County. This is a major milestone for Advance Housing, Inc. as we are entering into a County that we have traditionally not provided services in. The Division of Mental Health Services Award is to provide supportive housing services and subsidies to 30 individuals.
Advance Housing, Inc. has received funding from the Englewood Area Community Foundation and the PSE&G Foundation as matching funding for a recently submitted SAMHSA grant. The SAMHSA grant represents a collaboration of County Officials, non-profit, and for-profit organizations. If awarded, the SAMHSA grant can eliminate Chronic Homelessness in Bergen County. Announcements are anticipated in the fall.
