The purpose of this memo is to remind case managers, homeless coordinators, shelter providers, and housing search providers to fully explain to the EA family their housing search responsibilities. Field Operations Memo 2008-69 informed TAO staff about the recently established Interagency Housing Solutions Team Command Center (HSTCC) at DHCD where DHCD and DTA staff are matching families temporarily placed in DTA- funded shelters or in hotel/motels with the right housing resources.  By providing the EA family with Toolbox and stabilization services for the first 12 months of tenancy, the sustainability of the housing is enhanced.  Sustainable housing may be either market-rate housing or subsidized housing.   The team has identified housing search protocol that must be followed by all parties for this effort to be successful.
