Move-On Preference Program

The Move-On Preference Program is a permanent housing solution for program participants currently housed through Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) to seamlessly transition into subsidized housing with the local Public Housing Authority (PHA), the San Antonio Housing Authority (SAHA).

This program is designed for those who have previously experienced chronic homelessness, been successfully served through Permanent Supportive Housing, and will benefit from on-going housing subsidy to prevent a return to homelessness.

PSH Case Managers are encouraged to complete an application on behalf of their clients!

Who is Eligible?

  • Individuals and families currently in PSH who voluntarily agree to the program; and
  • Have been housed stably for 12+ months; and
  • Have no outstanding debt to PHA and meet criminal background requirements; and
  • Meet eligibility threshold in Arizona Self-Sufficiency Matrix (included in eligibility packet)

How to Apply

PSH Case Managers must refer potential program participants to the Move-On Preference Program.  Please note SARAH does not accept applications directly from clients being served through a PSH program.

To refer your client to the Move-On Preference Program, download the Move-on Referral Pre-Eligibility Application Packet. Complete this application with your client and submit it to the Google Form.
