Presentation: State Rental Assistance Program

We have invited Kimberly Rodgers, Housing Specialist from Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) to present on the State Rental Assistance program (SRAP), launching in October 2016.

This outreach event will take place at Endependence Center on Wednesday, October 12, from 7:00pm – 8:00pm; and again on Thursday, October 13, from 1:00pm – 2:00pm.

This program is designed to provide rental assistance to individuals with developmental disabilities targeted by the DOJ Settlement Agreement so they have the means to rent their own integrated, independent housing within the cities of Chesapeake, Norfolk, and Virginia Beach. Individuals, family members, caregivers, and caseworkers are invited to learn more about SRAP.

Please RSVP by October 11 with Vantoria Clay, at 757-351-1595, or vclay@endependence.org. Please let us know if you would like to request a reasonable accommodation.
