Mainstream Vouchers for People with Disabilities
  • Several DFW Housing Authorities are looking at opportunities to apply for Mainstream Vouchers. These Vouchers are designed to help tenants with disabilities live independently in the community. The Mainstream Vouchers are for non-elderly people with disabilities who are transitioning from institutional or other segregated settings to community living; at serious risk of institutionalization; homeless; or at risk of becoming homeless. This is affordable housing and would include services.

    CPSH is compiling an interest list. CPSH is looking for the following:
    • People with disabilities interested in applying for these Mainstream Vouchers
    • Property owners of single family or multi family properties interested in tenants with Mainstream Vouchers.
