Who

Similar to Metro Subsidies, Outstate Subsidies provides rent, utility, and financial assistance to people living with HIV; however, the Outstate Program serves low-income residents in 62 counties in outstate Missouri and 47 counties in outstate Illinois.  68% of our Outstate clients report incomes at or below 30% of the Average Median Income (AMI).

What

With a shortage of specialized health care in rural areas, DOORWAYS secures government funding for housing and subsidy assistance that will be distributed through expert agencies located in the 109 outstate counties.

Success

The focus of this program is to contribute to housing stability for those with a history of chronic housing instability. Outstate provides both short-term support and long-term interventions. Program success is achieved when clients are able to retain housing.
