CIS is committed to providing permanent housing and supportive services to vulnerable populations and people in need. The journey out of homelessness requires stability in order to be self-sustaining, and CIS programs are here to help.

SHALLOW SUBSIDY PROGRAM – INDIVIDUALS & FAMILIES
The Salvation Army Shallow Subsidy Program is designed to provide additional support to participants who have received rapid-rehousing assistance and need ongoing rental assistance to maintain their housing due to rent burden and low income. The program provides individuals with a subsidy of up to 35% of their monthly rent for a period of up to 5 years, depending on their level of need. Additionally, the program has prioritized 20 percent of its slots for Seniors (persons 62 and older) who need rental assistance to maintain their housing due to rent burden and low income while waiting for affordable/low-income housing. This program strives to achieve housing stability and assist participants to work toward the goal of fully assuming rent. To be eligible, individuals and families must be currently active in a rapid re-housing program and have a very low income below 50% AMI. Participants must be able to pay 60% or more of their total income towards rent.
STREET 2 SUBSIDY PROGRAM – INDIVIDUALS & FAMILIES
The Salvation Army, Street 2 Subsidy (S2S) Program is designed to support a targeted group of households currently experiencing homelessness, by providing a time-limited subsidy toward rental costs for fixed-income households (e.g., SSI, SSDI, Pension, Retirement). The subsidy amount is determined so that the household is paying no more than 60% to 90% of its income from the unit’s rent. Limited case management services consist of monthly meetings between a case manager and the participant household to assist with benefits, referrals to services, and any kind of support needed to stabilize the housing situation. The program will assist in accessing the waitlist for affordable housing to secure a permanent subsidy and end the temporary subsidy (S2S). The goal is to provide a permanent subsidy that will provide a safe and secure place they can afford.
