Alaskans on Parole or Probation and Youth Leaving Foster Care

Referral-based, time-limited, housing programs are offered in partnership with the State of Alaska. Housing for Alaskans on parole or probation is available in every community that offers the Housing Choice Voucher program.

Housing for youth aging out of foster care is available in every Alaska Housing community that offers the Housing Choice Voucher program.

Who is Eligible

Families with income at or below 60 percent of the area median income are encouraged to apply.

Alaska Housing partners provide supportive services to participating families. While participating in TBRA, families may still submit an application for any Alaska Housing program with an open waiting list.

How it Works

As assistance becomes available, families are invited to a briefing session, provided detailed information about the housing program and issued a voucher. 

Rental assistance is limited to 24 months for parolees/probationers.

Rental assistance is limited to 36 months for youth.

To receive a subsidy, the rental amount for the unit must be reasonable. The unit must also pass a federal housing quality standards inspection. Landlords may use their own lease, but Alaska Housing requires an initial lease term of one year.

Once a family finds and leases an Alaska Housing-approved rental unit, Alaska Housing breaks the rent into a family portion and a subsidy portion. Families are responsible for paying their portion of the rent directly to their landlord, while Alaska Housing pays the subsidy portion directly to the landlord.

How to Apply

Families or individuals must contact the appropriate State of Alaska agency for eligibility and referral. Our application packages are available on our Applications page.
