Up to $2.3 million is available through Washington State Department of Commerce funding. Applications are due on March 23, 2023, by 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time.
CBRA provides long-term or bridge rental subsidies for people with behavioral health conditions who have recently been discharged from state or community psychiatric stays and their households. When partnered with programs offering supportive housing services, highly-vulnerable persons with complex behavioral health needs have opportunities to live independently in the communities of their choice.
This RFP seeks an organization to administer CBRA to households already enrolled in CBRA as well as to new households, as capacity and budget allows.

CBRA partners rental subsidies with programs offering supportive housing services in order to support the opportunity for individuals with behavioral health conditions and their Households to live independently in the communities of their choice.
The permanent supportive housing will include permanent or long-term eligibility, so long as the household remains eligible, and will have support services available, although participation is voluntary.
CBRA is focused on serving a priority population defined as households meeting eligibility criteria for the program who are also discharging, needing to discharge, or who have discharged from a state psychiatric hospital or community psychiatric bed within the past 12 months.
Eligible households must also meet the income criteria for CBRA.
- Criteria One: Household income is at or below 50% of area median income as defined by HUD; and
- Criteria Two: At least one adult Household member has a documented Behavioral Health Condition; and
- Criteria Three: The same adult Household member is eligible for a Long-Term Support Services Program; and
