Permanent Housing

Permanent Housing Providers

Dauphin County has several permanent supportive housing types, some of which are provided by both the Harrisburg and the Dauphin County Housing Authorities. Housing Authority housing comes in the forms of project-based Section 8, Housing Choice Vouchers, and entire neighborhoods of housing; .e.g. William Howard Day housing.

In addition, assisted housing programs are more likely to be usable by individuals and families who were homeless and are seeking permanent housing. Another important aspect of the permanent housing needed by people leaving homelessness is the nature and intensity of supportive services available through the housing.
