HART Voucher Program

 The HART program was developed to help adults with a serious mental illness find affordable housing in order to prevent homelessness.  The program is primarily for persons who are being discharged from an inpatient placement and who have no place to live.

 The primary goal of the program is to create a bridge from the Housing Related Assistance Program to more long-term stabilized housing such as Section 8, Public Housing, or independent housing.
