The City of Philadelphia’s Office of Homeless Services, in collaboration with the Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services, is now soliciting interest from not-for-profit organizations to supply and/or operate a Single Room Occupancy program, SRO-Philadelphia. The program seeks to provide a temporary housing opportunity for individuals who are experiencing homelessness and who have health conditions making them susceptible to COVID-19.
SRO-Philadelphia seeks to provide temporary housing in a non-congregate sleeping environment for 250 vulnerable individuals who are experiencing homelessness. This will allow individuals to live independently with support in a single room, decreasing the possibility that they will contract COVID-19.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis through December 31, 2020 at 5 p.m. Submissions received by August 14 will receive priority consideration for the first phase, which will begin in the fall.
