ROTW: NYCHA Family Re-entry Pilot Program (Overview and Eligibility Guidelines)

Monday, December 02, 2013

The Family Re-entry Pilot Program is a collaborative effort with the New York City Housing Authority and the NYC Department of Homeless Services. The Vera Institute of Justice and the Corporation of Supportive Housing are working with NYCHA in the planning and development of the project. The program is designed to reunite a pilot group of 150 individuals leaving prison and/or jail with their families who live in NYCHA public housing and to provide them with re-entry services. Eligible participants are identified by a participating provider after release.
150 selected participants will be given a two-year temporary permission to reside in the household while they are enrolled in the program. At the end of two years, if the pilot participant successfully completes the requirements of the program, his/her family can request that he/she be added to the NYCHA household on a permanent basis.
