The Project Design and Administration component of a supportive housing project is the process of planning and leading the effort, including key decisions about physical structure, team members and funding.
Quality project design and administration in a supportive housing project is:
- Tenant-Centered: Tenants play an active role in planning the supportive housing project, and all partners share a common commitment to helping tenants thrive.
- Accessible: The housing is affordable, in a location that meets tenants’ needs and accommodates persons with special needs.
- Coordinated: Roles, responsibilities and communication strategies are clearly established among the supportive housing partners, codified in written agreements and revisited regularly.
- Integrated: The supportive housing project meets or exceeds community standards, and the partners actively engage in community dialogue.
- Sustainable: The supportive housing project has funding that is adequate for its ongoing operations and allows it to target its intended tenants.
