REGIONAL Rental Assistance

The Regional Rental Assistance Program (RRAP) is a rental assistance program that assists with access to decent, safe, and affordable housing to individuals who are recovering from a serious mental illness and have extremely low income.

This program operates much like the federal Housing Choice Voucher Program also known as Section 8. Rental assistance and (in some cases) assistance with security or utility deposits is provided to eligible participants of the Region 6 area.

TRANSITION AGE YOUTH Rental Assistance

The Transition Age Youth Rental Assistance Program (TAYRAP) is an 18-month rental assistance program for individuals age 18-26. TAYRAP functions much like the Federal Housing Choice Voucher Program, operated by public housing authorities. TAYRAP assists young adults with independent living and the transition from youth into adulthood.

The TAYRAP assisted participant or tenant is responsible for finding their own suitable housing within the geographic area covered by Region 6. The housing assistance is a transition subsidy or temporary subsidy until the participant is paying full rent or rental assistance is available to the participant.
