2020 Implementation Fact Sheet: THP-NMD Housing Supplement

Last Updated Jul 15, 2022

This fact sheet provides information about the Transitional Housing Placement for Non-minor Dependents (THP-NMD) Housing Supplement, which was established in 2020 to address the high cost of housing in certain counties across California. 

This resource supplements the THP-NMD rate paid to providers on behalf of youth placed in their programs. Housing Supplement amounts vary across eligible counties, based on the cost of housing in that county according to Fair Market Rent. A higher supplement amount is paid to providers for housing youth who are custodial parents. 

The THP-NMD Housing Supplement is being implemented on a phased-in basis across the state, beginning July 1, 2021, and fully implemented by September 1, 2022, pending automation functionality in the statewide payment system.
