Novel Coronavirus - COVID-19: Information for Community Behavioral Health Providers, Consumers, and Families

Targeted Transitional Support

The TDMHSAS Office of Housing and Homeless Services operates a pair of targeted transitional support programs to cover short-term needs and help people get on their feet in new housing situations.  Learn more about the Community Targeted Transitional Support and Inpatient Targeted Transitional Support programs below.

The Community Targeted Transitional Support program provides specific, temporary financial assistance that allows consumers to live independently in the community. This is achieved by providing funding for rental deposits, rental assistance, utility deposits, utility payments, eye care, and dental care. Eligible individuals are those receiving treatment for a mental illness or co-occurring substance abuse disorder whose household income is below the Federal Poverty Level and can show this is a temporary or one-time need. Payments are not made to service recipients, but instead directly to the vendor, such as the landlord or utility company.

The Inpatient Targeted Transitional Support program assists persons awaiting discharge from Regional Mental Health Institutes by providing them temporary financial assistance up to 6 months for items such as rental and utility deposits, transportation, medication co-pay, etc. until their SSI or other income and benefits can be restored, thereby enabling them to move into community settings when they are clinically ready. These are people who otherwise would need to stay in the Regional Mental Health Institutes because they do not have the resources necessary to begin their life outside the institute. Payments are not made to the individuals, but instead directly to the vendors, such as the landlord or utility company. TDMHSAS contracts with community agencies in each service area, which then work with the Regional Mental Health Institutes to identify individuals eligible for the program.
