The area has a memorable character and an easily discernible locale defined by its curvilinear layout of the street and sidewalks, accommodating multi-modal transportation.

Service providers may submit an application for consumers who meet the above eligibility criteria, and are ready for housing1, The Right Place will make the final determination on the qualification of consumers.  To do this service providers and/or consumers, may complete and submit the PSH Application, along with the Homelessness Verification and the Disability Verification Forms.  All three forms are available under the Applications and Documents section located on our Resources page, or by request, and may be returned, by mailelectronically, or in person.  You are encouraged to thoroughly read each document because each case is unique and some may not be required to complete all three forms (i.e., proof of disability income [SSI, SSDI, VADC, VASMC, etc.] will suffice as Disability Verification).
