According to Johnson, funding sets priorities for the program’s objectives. "Because our funding comes from HUD, we have to focus on getting people into housing." The goal of the housing track is to get clients off the streets and into some type of housing—whether it is short-term respite housing or an independent living situation, according to Johnson. The project maintains two respite apartments at NLP headquarters, which is located in a brown brick building in one of Pittsburgh’s less safe residential neighborhoods. When a client is ready for more permanent, independent housing, he or she pinpoints a desired living area within Allegheny County, and a NLP case worker will help the client find a suitable apartment there. The client spends 30 percent of his or her income on rent, and NLP subsidizes the rest of the rent for a two-year period. As long as the client is in NLP-supported housing, he or she should be committed to his or her recovery in some way—this may mean a recovery program for some, and mental health services for others, according to the NLP supervisor.
