Am I Eligible for OlyCAP Housing Services?
Our Housing Department works with a number of different programs offering services in Rapid Rehousing, Homeless Prevention, Rental Assistance, Emergency Shelter and Homeless Assistance. We strive to help as many community members as possible to achieve housing stability. The current housing crisis impacting Jefferson County is marked by a shortage of available housing, including and especially affordable housing. This impacts the entire community, and presents many challenges for all people in need of housing. Funding for housing assistance is limited, and our prioritization for housing services serves those with the greatest barriers to achieving housing stability first. The following list provides some guidance regarding what our services can offer:
