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.
Who qualifies for RAFT?
UPDATE: As of February 1, 2018, an extended population – including elders, unaccompanied youth, people with disabilities, and other households without minor children can begin applying for homelessness prevention funds through the RAFT program. Other criteria still apply.
