Help for the Chronically Homeless (HRAP)


Through the Homeless Rental Assistance Program (HRAP), the City of Salem, Salem Housing Authority (SHA), private property owners, and community service providers, permanently housed 200 of Salem's most vulnerable chronically homeless individuals. The program includes help with housing, food, furnishings, and health. The Program combines rental assistance and intensive case management with the long-term goal of housing stability.

SHA  has also committed 100 Housing Choice Vouchers to graduates of the Program to ensure their long-term housing stability and self-sufficiency.

Launched in July 2017, the City of Salem committed $1.4 million to support the Homeless Rental Assistance Program. The Program is administered and operated by SHA in collaboration with ARCHES.  Health/mental health care providers, law enforcement, courts, homeless service providers and other social service providers are critical partners to the moving our unsheltered neighbors into permanent housing.

All referrals go through ARCHES for assessment prior to being referred to SHA. Please call ARCHES at 503-399-9080 to schedule an appointment.


In addition to Salem Housing Authority, the following is a list of landlords that are participating in the HRAP Program.  SHA would like to recognize these private landlords, who are making a positive difference in people's lives and giving a second chance to the chronically homeless.

Without their support, the HRAP could not be possible. Thank you to all of them!
