Independent Living Initiative

The Independent Living Initiative is a short-term and one-time assistance program for adult consumers and children who are receiving services through Alliance. Please note that ILI applications are submitted by providers on behalf of consumers engaged in services. Those services may vary across the spectrum and do not have to be “enhanced benefits services.”

ILI is intended for individuals who are behind on their rent and/or utility payments and who are facing possible eviction or utility disconnection or those who need start-up funds to move into permanent housing following short term life circumstances.

Learn more about ILI and access the web-based application.

Restoring Hope Initiative

Alliance has implemented a new component of the ILI called the Restoring Hope Initiative, a 4-12 month longer-term rental assistance program targeting the highest users of crisis services, jails, residential settings or hospitals who are homeless or precariously housed.

Learn more about the Restoring Hope Initiative and access the web-based ILI application.

Transitions to Community Living

The Transitions to Community Living Initiative is the result of the State of North Carolina entering into a settlement agreement with the United States Department of Justice (USDOJ) on August 23, 2012. The purpose of this agreement is to assure that persons with mental illness are allowed to reside in their communities in the least restrictive settings of their choice. The agreement is the end product of over a year of negotiations between the State and the USDOJ.

The Supportive Housing Program (SHP), also called DASH, is a federally-funded program in Durham County that provides permanent housing assistance in connection with supportive services to homeless people with disabilities and their families. The program specifically targets people who have a serious mental illness, substance use issues, and/or intellectual/developmental disabilities.
