Unity Housing Stabilization Program

2022 COSCDA Sterling Achievement Award Winner - Homelessness

Location
Statewide  – Alaska

Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC) has developed an innovative approach to address homelessness within the state of Alaska: the Alaska Housing Stabilization and Recovery Program. Using Emergency Rental Assistance funding from the U.S. Treasury, this program pairs housing stability services with up to 12 months of rental assistance for eligible households. The program’s approach is simple: identify eligible households, immediately move them into transitional housing, and identify/move the household into a long-term unit. This simplified approach has allowed over 1,000 people previously experiencing homelessness to be housed, over 250 of which are under the age of 18.
