IHNSC has two apartments in North Plainfield with section-based rental assistance. Clients leave our emergency shelter, move into these apartments, receive Section 8 rental assistance and continue with professional case management, counseling and support. The program allows families to move into permanent housing without the long wait for Section 7 rental assistance vouchers. IHNSC can then accept more families in to our Emergency Shelter Program.
Clients strive to maintain self-sufficiency in permanent housing and find higher paying jobs to “disqualify” themselves from Section 8 rental assistance. Clients must participate in case management for the term of their residency in order to reside in the supported apartments.
