Mainstream Program Waiting List Opening

HOM, Inc., on behalf of Arizona Behavioral Health Corporation, will conduct an online open enrollment lottery to accept pre-applications for the Mainstream Housing Opportunities for Persons with Disabilities Program.

The Mainstream Program provides rental assistance through Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers to very low-income, disabled households.  The purpose of the program is to expand residential choice for Mainstream households while promoting fair housing, ensuring safe and affordable housing, and encouraging self-sufficiency efforts by participant households.  The Mainstream program serves ALL disabled families, regardless of the type of disability.  There is no preference provided to families with specific types of disabilities and the program does NOT require that applicants be homeless.
