Norfolk: Tidewater Gardens

USI is responsible for implementing the People First Empowered by USI initiative. The People Plan will build upon existing case management and resident services currently available through the Norfolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority with a robust People First initiative funded by the City for the residents of the St. Paul’s public housing communities, including Tidewater Gardens. The City has committed $3 million a year for five years for the People First initiative – which focuses on mobility service, case management, and transformative human services. Through People First and strategic case management, each household will be offered supports to improve health, employment, and education outcomes.
