8 Homeless found Homes thanks to Initiative


Chattanooga, Tennessee – The City of Chattanooga, in cooperation with the Chattanooga Housing Authority, announces that eight chronically homeless men and one family will be the first to find permanent housing through the City’s HomeAgain initiative.  This program is investing over $600,000 in the Chattanooga community to create permanent supportive housing opportunities for individuals and families experiencing chronic homelessness.  HomeAgain funds can be used to acquire, construct, rehab or convert housing within the city limits of Chattanooga.

In this initial round, The Selection Committee awarded $40,000.00 to Rosewood Supportive Services and $90,764.00 to the AIM Center.  Rosewood’s mission is to provide professional and reliable assistance at a fair price to help people in need function to the best of their abilities and live as independently as possible.  The AIM Center provides psychiatric rehabilitation services to promote community acceptance and reintegration.  “Thank you to the members of the selection committee for reviewing proposals and choosing these recipients,” said Mayor Ron Littlefield.

Remaining HomeAgain funds are expected to be awarded within the next few weeks.  Funding for the HomeAgain initiative comes from Home Investment Partnership Funds (HOME funds) which are provided by Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to expand the supply of decent, affordable housing for low and very low-income families.
