Housing Options Program (HOP)



Households interested in the Housing Options Program should contact their social worker for more program details and application information.


The Housing Options Program is a local housing initiative funded by Zumbro Valley Mental Health Center (ZVMHC). Applicants must have a diagnosis of SPMI (serious and persistent mental illness). This program is designed to be similar to the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program and provides short-term rental assistance until the participant enters the HCV program.

HOP serves an average of 25 households per month. Households rent a unit from a private landlord who agrees to the conditions of the program. The maximum rent subsidy is $250 per month.

ZVMHC provides more information about their agency on their website
