Jericho Project, a nationally acclaimed nonprofit, was recently awarded $8,906,646 by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as part of a nationwide effort to address street homelessness among unsheltered people in cities and rural communities. For 40 years, Jericho has offered supportive housing and vital services to thousands of individuals experiencing homelessness across New York City. 

With the help of HUD funding, Jericho will serve 90 unsheltered participants per year over a three-year grant period. The initiative will employ the help of the organization's Rapid Rehousing Program, which helps speed the process of getting individuals and families into affordable apartments through Jericho's network of landlords sympathetic to the plight of homelessness. In addition to securing housing, Jericho provides tenants with ongoing counseling in managing finances and maintaining housing stability, Jericho Project said in a recent press release.

"As a longstanding advocate for permanent supportive housing, Jericho is thrilled to be able to move unsheltered New Yorkers into stable housing and provide ongoing counseling to support them. We applaud HUD and our local Continuum of Care for their leadership in helping some of our most vulnerable neighbors in their time of need," said Tori Lyon, CEO of Jericho Project.

To facilitate this program, Jericho will hire 15 staff members to provide intensive case management services, clinical therapy, housing, and other supportive services. The project is slated to begin July 15th.
