Special Needs Housing Referral Program

The Link to Permanent Housing Initiative was implemented in 2009 by Florida Housing to provide opportunities for extremely low income (ELI) households with special needs to access affordable rental housing. In 2015 The Arc Jacksonville became the referral agency for for the Link to Permanent Housing Initiative in Northeast Florida.

The Arc Jacksonville works with multiple communities throughout Northeast Florida to provide referrals for those seeking affordable housing. To qualify for a Special Needs Referral, you must be able to provide proof of disability, meet any applicable age requirement, such as 55+, and meet the income and background check requirements set by the apartment community.
