Move-On Preference Program

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

This program is designed for agencies to help those clients who have previously experienced chronic homelessness, have 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!

*PLEASE NOTE – YOUR CASE WORKER MUST APPLY ON YOUR BEHALF. YOU CANNOT SUBMIT AN APPLICATION WITHOUT A CASE WORKER. THIS CASE WORKER CAN BE THROUGH A SHELTER, EDUCATION SYSTEM, OUTREACH, ETC.*
