SHA’s Homeless Rental Assistance Program (HRAP) is Salem’s Housing First Initiative to permanently house the most vulnerable 100 chronically homeless individuals in the City of Salem. The program consists of providing rental assistance, barrier removal funding, facilitation of access to crucial services, peer support and intensive case management.

Additionally, SHA has committed 100 Housing Choice Vouchers to graduates of the HRAP program to ensure their long-term housing stability and self-sufficiency.

Launched in July 2017, HRAP is a City-funded program administered and operated by SHA in collaboration with ARCHES.  Various sectors are critically important to the success of the program, including health/mental health care providers, law enforcement, courts, homeless service providers and other social service providers.

All referrals go through ARCHES for assessment prior to being referred to SHA. Please call ARCHES at 503-399-9080 to schedule an appointment.


SHA is launching our HRAP Sponsorship Program to provide businesses with the opportunity to help the chronically homeless in Salem to achieve housing stability and self-sufficiency.

Many thanks to our generous funders who help make the HRAP Program possible!


In addition to Salem Housing Authority, the following is a list of landlords that are participating in the HRAP Program.  SHA would like to recognize these private landlords, who are making a positive difference in people’s lives and giving a second chance to the chronically homeless.


Without their support, the HRAP could not be possible. Thank you to all of them!
