Program Description

The Permanent Housing for Homeless Families Program (PHHP) was a joint city/state program funded by capital contributions of $85 million from each source; hence its nickname “85/85.” Fifty-one percent of the units produced under the program went to homeless households and 49 percent to households at risk of homelessness. HPD was primarily responsible for referring city-owned sites to the program and choosing owner/managers, and HFA was primarily responsible for the construction phase of the program. All PHHF funds have been spent; the last start date for a project under PHHF occurred in 2005.
