Rental Choice VA information session – Thursday, August 21, 2014

The Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board is hosting two information sessions on Thursday, August 21, about the CSB’s new pilot program, "Rental Choice VA." The program provides individuals with intellectual disabilities (ID) or developmental disabilities (DD) who currently live in Medicaid-funded group homes, intermediate care facilities, or nursing facilities, or who live with their parents and receive Medicaid ID or DD Waiver services, an opportunity to move to safe, affordable rental housing they can lease on their own or with a friend. Rental Choice VA provides "rent up" assistance to offset the costs of getting into housing. It also provides rental assistance, which covers the difference between 30% of the individual’s monthly adjusted household income and the rent for an approved unit. To learn more, come to one of the information sessions, either from 1 to 2:30 p.m. or from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 21st at the Pennino Building, 12011 Government Center Parkway Room 324, Fairfax, VA  22035. Individuals and families are invited to attend and should RSVP to Jeannie Cummins.
