Targeted Affordable Housing for Individuals and Families

What is TAH? 

The Targeted Affordable Housing (TAH) program provides a permanent housing subsidy with case management (i.e. typically a quarterly check-in) to ensure housing stability. TAH is designed to assist individuals and families who are independent, but due to disability, age or other socio-economic factors require long-term subsidy to prevent homeless. Such individuals and families are appropriately engaged in community services and do not require intensive services to remain stably housed.
