Transitional Housing for Recovery in Viable Environments Demonstration Program Act or the THRIVE Act

(Sec. 2) This bill amends the United States Housing Act of 1937 to require the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to establish a five-year demonstration program for nonprofit organizations and tribally designated housing entities to provide low-income rental-assistance vouchers to individuals recovering from an opioid or other substance-use disorder. Specifically, these vouchers shall be provided through a supportive housing program that provides treatment for such disorders and coordination with workforce development providers.

HUD may waive, or specify alternative requirements for, any provision of statute or regulation governing the use of these vouchers (except for requirements relating to fair housing, nondiscrimination, labor standards, or the environment) if such waiver or alternative is necessary.
