State Rental Assistance Program (SRAP)

The purpose of the State Rental Assistance Program is to assist low-income individuals who require affordable housing and supportive service to live safely and independently in the community.

Population Served:

  • Clients exiting state-supported and privately run long-term care facilities.
  • Clients exiting the Delaware Psychiatric Center.
  • Youth aging out of foster care.
  • Families for whom the lack of affordable housing is a barrier to reunification.
  • Step-Up program participants least likely to transition to independent living without SRAP assistance.
  • Individuals at risk of requiring services from a state-supported institution (Diversion Clients).

Entry in to this program is by REFERRAL ONLY from the State of Delaware.  You cannot apply directly to First State for services under this program!
