Residential Assistance for Families in Transition (RAFT)
The state-funded RAFT program is a tool used by the Housing Consumer Education Center (HCEC) team to provide eligible households up to $4,000 per 12-month period that can be used to help retain their housing, obtain new housing, or otherwise avoid becoming homeless.
There are new procedures for the RAFT application process. Please read about those details by clicking HERE.
To determine eligibility, it is MANDATORY that people bring their ID (for all household members), most updated proof of income, and proof of housing crisis documentation. See the link above for more details.
Who qualifies for RAFT?
RAFT is now available for an expanded population including individuals, families with older children, couples without children, unaccompanied youth and any other household size. All other program regulations and requirements remain the same.
