Recovery Supportive Living Assistance (RSLA) Program
Recovery housing addresses the need for safe, healthy, affordable, illicit substance-free housing for those with substance use disorder. The program provides peer and recovery support to a person in early recovery from substance use disorder.
The Recovery Supportive Living Assistance (RSLA) Program helps people in Fayette County who have trouble paying to enter or continue in recovery housing. You will receive assistance if all eligibility criteria are met, and funding is available. LFUCG will coordinate with the owner or operator of the recovery residence to provide up to $400 in assistance for a resident entering or continuing in recovery housing.
Apply online. It is important to complete all sections of the application and attach a copy of the program agreement signed by the resident and a representative from the recovery residence. Additional information regarding recovery housing requirements can be found on the application.
Recovery residences participating in the RSLA Program must be a Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government (LFUCG) vendor. To become a vendor of LFUCG, complete and return the New Vendor Form and a W-9 for the recovery residence to the LFUCG, Division of Central Purchasing, 200 E. Main Street, Room 338, Lexington, KY 40507. Completed vendor forms can also be faxed to (859) 258-3322 or emailed to email@example.com.
Incomplete applications, including applications that do not contain required documentation, are not eligible for consideration.
