rental assistance

Home Forward operates several programs through Coordinated Access.

The RLRA program will primarily serve households where people are living with disabilities, and leaving or at risk of long-term homelessness.

In Multnomah County, the Regional Long-term Rent Assistance program (RLRA) is managed by Home Forward. It provides rent subsidy to qualified low-income tenants, and allows private landlords to rent apartments and homes to these tenants at fair market rates. It can be either a tenant-based subsidy to help households find market homes, or a project-based subsidy that helps households who need on-site supportive services in a specific building. Program service partners cover move-in costs and provide supportive services, as needed, to maintain housing stability.

For details on policy and how RLRA works, visit the Supportive Housing Services page at Metro.
