Houston Housing Authority and Mayor Annise Parker announce details of plan to add 1,000 units of permanent housing for homeless Houstonians within the next two years through $100 million in Project-Based Vouchers, funded by HUD. This pledge includes plans to construct new apartments that will provide supportive services, as well as the intent to provide up to 200 vouchers to be used at new properties and/or up to 200 vouchers for existing properties that comply with program requirements and federal Housing Quality Standards. The goal of the new initiative is to create permanent supportive housing for homeless and vulnerable Houstonians. The targeted population includes income eligible (less than 30 percent of the area media income) homeless veterans and homeless individuals or families and individuals with disabilities.
