Last Friday, December 16, DHCD held a meeting updating the community about the HomeBASE program and its administration. The core operation of the program wont significantly change – offering Rental Assistance to families who entered the system before October 28th and only offering household assistance to families who entered after Oct. 28th. Families in Flex Funds will continue to be transitioned into the HomeBASE program.
In the period from August to October, HomeBASE served over 3,000 families and decreased the amount of families in hotels and motels by 25%. Going forward DHCD projects that 250 families will be housed with HomeBASE between November and July for a total of 2,000 families for the remainder of the fiscal year.
