The Recovery Housing Program (RHP), a pilot initiative under the federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, aims to provide stable, transitional housing for people that are in recovery from a substance use disorder (SUD), with the goal of guiding these people to self-sufficiency.

Local governments are eligible to apply for the Recovery Housing Program.  The available amount for the program is approximately $2.5 million. Of this amount, $1,506,320 is set-aside for projects within North Carolina’s Appalachian region. Tier 1 and Tier 2 counties will receive preference in the selection process.

The 2024 RHP application cycle opened on Friday, January 12, 2024 and all applications must be submitted by 4:00 pm on Friday, April 12, 2024.   Award announcements are anticipated to occur on Wednesday, May 8, 2024.
