Transition in Place (TIP)

  • TIP is a permanent housing program model in which homeless families obtain housing in the community through a lease in their own name while receiving supportive services and rental assistance for a specified duration of time.  TIP families have limited barriers to self-sufficiency and generally need six months to two years of support; however, they do not need the more intensive setting of group living or facility based transitional housing.  Unlike the traditional transitional housing model which requires individuals to move after two years, TIP has been shown to be a better, more cost effective approach for some families to achieve housing stability. Download a copy of the TIP Evaluation Report.
