Guide Dimensions (Database Structure)

The basic element within the Guide is a service provided by a specific program or resource within a given jurisdiction or region, or a housing complex or unit, in a particular location.  The Guide is organized in three primary dimensions:  

  • Jurisdiction or region (a hierarchy of jurisdictions)
  • Housing options (e.g., specific rental complexes, organized by type of assistance program(s))  
  • Type of assistance (e.g., emergency rent, furniture, moving assistance).  

Each program is also tagged with keywords that can be searched.  The information below is automatically generated from the database. To seach the database, use the choices on the menu above to Search for Housing or Search Resources for a wide variety of housing assistance.
