Tenancy Support Services (TSS) are housing-related activities and services that support an individual or household’s ability to prepare for and transition to housing, and support the individual or household in being a successful tenant in the housing arrangement and thus able to sustain tenancy.
TSS are critical to the implementation of Supportive Housing. In partnership with the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS), Office of Behavioral Health (OBH), the Colorado Department of Local Affairs' Division of Housing (DOH) is making at least $1,300,000 in TSS available to existing Supportive Housing programs. This may be adjusted depending upon funding availability and amount of quality applications.
