Bridges and Bridges Regional Treatment Center

The Bridges Program serves low-income individuals with mental illness to provide them with supportive resources and housing assistance. The temporary rental subsidy is intended to bridge the housing gap between existing treatment centers, institutional facilities, and homelessness to permanent affordable housing. Program participants contribute between 30-40% of their income toward rent. The remaining portion of their rent is paid through a grant funded by the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency.

The Carver County CDA obtains referrals from Carver County Health and Human Services for this program.

Permanent Supportive Housing

Housing Trust Fund

The Housing Trust Fund assists homeless or near homeless people with disabilities to gain entry to housing and achieve residential, economic, and emotional stability. Program participants pay 30 percent of their household income towards rent and the HTF subsidy covers the balance of the rent payable to the landlord. Applicants work toward successful independent living while on this temporary program until a more permanent rental subsidy becomes available.

Referrals for the Housing Trust Fund program are made through the Continuum of Care Coordinated Entry Priority List.

Metro HRA Rental Assistance

Participating property owners are guaranteed a stable source of rental income.

Families may rent any type of housing in the Metro HRA service area from participating property owners. Eligible households pay 30% to 40% of their incomes for rent, and Metro HRA pays the remainder within established rent guidelines.
