Population Served

 

All 101 income restricted units are permanent supportive housing with project based vouchers for extremely low income households that are the most vulnerable to the high housing costs in the region. The Housing Authority of Santa Clara County will identify potential residents using the Vulnerability Index-Service Prioritization Decision Assessment Tool or VI-SPDAT. FCH will partner with an experienced healthcare and supportive service provider to ensure that appropriate on-site services are available to improve the quality of life of this special needs population. All tenants will receive a free, annual transit pass, or “SmartPass” to provide them access to VTA transit.

Tax Credits and local funding sources will provide funding for this 100% Permanent
