We provide funding to local behavioral health agencies to deliver the following services. For more information about any of these services, please contact our office.
Community Behavioral Health Rental Assistance Program (CBRA)
North Sound BH-ASO has contracted with supportive housing providers in Island, San Juan, Skagit, Snohomish and Whatcom Counties to act as the lead entity for the new “Community Behavioral Rental Assistance Program” or CBRA. The program provides housing rental assistance to persons from the North Sound region experiencing a behavioral health condition, who are eligible for a long-term support program, and have a need for long-term housing support with no other payment alternative or network they can rely on. Priority is placed on those exiting state psychiatric hospitals, community psychiatric inpatient beds, behavioral health treatment facilities, or local jails.
