"CITY COUNCIL APPROVES INNOVATIVE PROGRAM TO PROVIDE RAPID SUPPORT FOR RESIDENTS WHO ARE HOMELESS
Flexible Housing Subsidy Pool Will Quickly Connect Chronically Homeless
to Housing and Wraparound Support Services
The Chicago City Council today approved funding for the Flexible Housing Subsidy Pool (FHSP), a one-of-a-kind supportive housing rental subsidy model that combines both housing/rental subsidy expertise and intensive case management to effectively house residents who are experiencing homelessness.
The FHSP, co-sponsored by Alderman James Cappleman, establishes a rental subsidy source that allows the City of Chicago to quickly house and provide supportive services to some of Chicago’s most challenging and costly homeless populations, including individuals who are high utilizers of emergency rooms and the criminal justice system.
The program brings together an unprecedented partnership that includes the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA), the Chicago Department of Family and Support Services (DFSS), the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH), the Chicago Department of Planning and Development (DPD) and the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH)."
