THRIVE (Tools to Help Residents In a Vulnerable Economy)
THRIVE is a new program from Housing Assistance Corporation that provides a shallow monthly rental subsidy, paired with required coaching to achieve financial goals. The program is currently targeted towards households with a member working in childcare or with people with disabilities or households in certain town whose income is 100% of area median income or below.
Voucher holders: you can receive quicker service by completing the form(s) that the state requires for your program and sending the completed form to your program representative.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Section 8 voucher holders who experience a decrease in income due to the outbreak will not be held to the two voluntary interims between regular re-exams.
In response to the pandemic Housing Assistance Corporation has implemented a work-from-home home policy for staff. The goal of this policy is to keep client services as operational as possible while also keeping our staff and clients safe and reducing the spread of the disease. As a result, our ability to process various requests and functions may be delayed as Personal Identifying Information is not accessible from home to protect confidentiality. We are staggering staff time in the office in order to process the work. Additionally, inspections will be conducted on a very limited basis to keep staff and the community safe.
We appreciate your patience during this unprecedented time.
