Housing and Essential Needs
Looking for assistance?
The Housing and Essential Needs (HEN) Program may provide non-cash housing and other assistance (personal hygiene items and bus tokens) for some recipients of state-funded Medical Care Services (MCS -- also known as Medicaid).
Commerce does not provide direct rent or utility assistance to households. If you are looking for direct assistance for a household, please contact your local HEN Provider.
The Department of Commerce is administering the Housing and Essential Needs Program through grants with our current network of homeless and housing partners.
