The HopeWorks housing department provides a variety of rental assistance programs. Programs range from one-time emergency assistance and short term assistance to permanent rental assistance. Each or our housing programs and funding sources has unique requirements and qualifications from one time needs to long tem help for those with a mental health diagnosis. Some programs also include qualifications based on income and require potential clients to earn less than 30% of the area median income (AMI) up to 80% of the AMI. HopeWorks offers support services to all program participants in order to help with household stability. To determine need and allow use to serve those who are most vulnerable most programs require a coordinated entry.
Our housing department also serves as a Local Lead Agency for Albuquerque. As a Local Lead Agency we are able to screen potential tenants for housing opportunities. Candidates for this program must have at least one household member with special needs to be considered for residency in one of six Low Income Tax Credit rental properties in Albuquerque. HopeWorks screens priority applicants for Silver Gardens, Imperial, Plaza Cuidana, Silver Moon Lodge, Casitas de Colores and Casa Feliz. Applicants are required to have at least one monthly home visit from a service provider. This service provider will refer them to the program as being eligible for these special needs units.
