Neighborhood Homes and Mainstream Vouchers for People with Disabilities
  • CPSH will be working with interested home owners to access HUD vouchers, so the residences have access to decreased rent costs. In mid to late August we will know more about which DFW Housing Authorities have been awarded funding 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. Information about the progress of these applications will be posted in future CPSH emails.

    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.

    Self-advocates, and parents/guardians of a persons with a disability, and property owners please complete the Yellow Sheet.

    Service providers (medicaid or private) and interested in assisting tenants please complete the SP Form.
