SCCHA’s Chronically Homeless Direct Referral (CHDR) program is a locally designed voucher referral program for the chronically homeless population in Santa Clara County. A partnership between SCCHA and the County of Santa Clara ensures that chronically homeless families who receive vouchers are connected to supportive programs and case management services.

Who is Eligible

  • Must meet Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program eligibility requirements.
  • Participants must be chronically homeless and referred through the Care Coordination Project (CCP) in order to apply for housing assistance through the CHDR program.
