PSH Policy and Procedures

The Interim Detroit CoC Board approved moving forward with the Permanent Supportive Housing Coordinated Referrals (Side Doors Closing) work plan at the October 2015 board meeting.  A voluntary PSH Sub Committee formed in November 2015 per the CoC CAM Governance Committee and was charged with creating a draft Policy & Procedure as well as addressing the pre-requisites for implementing coordinated PSH referrals in in the Detroit CoC.  The draft PSH Policy & Procedure was sent out for comment, updated and approved at the April 2015 CoC Board meeting.  The CoC Permanent Supportive Housing Policy and Procedure and supporting documents can be found below.

Moving Up Initiative

The Moving Up initiative was born out of a collective community effort to empower supportive housing tenants to live as independently as possible in the community and to make more efficient use of supportive housing units throughout Detroit. Through this strategy, MSHDA created a preference for a subset of Section 8 vouchers for individuals and families who are currently living in PSH units and continue to need a housing subsidy but no longer need the intensive supports.
