Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-housing Program (HPRP)
Emergency Housing / Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-housing Program (HPRP)
HPRP Program Overview
The Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-housing Program (HPRP) funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) provides financial assistance and services to prevent people and families from becoming homeless and help those who are experiencing homelessness to be quickly re-housed and stabilized.
Homeless Prevention
Homelessness prevention programs include assessment of the client’s immediate housing needs, exploring housing options and resources, flexible financial assistance such as rent assistance and payment of arrearages, and case management services focused on housing stabilization.
Rapid Re-housing
Re-housing programs work with people who are already homeless to help them quickly move into rental housing. Re-housing programs can provide housing location, financial assistance including security deposits, rent assistance and payment of arrearages and case management.
Both homeless prevention and rapid re-housing programs coordinate with other community resources to ensure that participants are linked to ongoing assistance, such as housing vouchers, intensive case management, or assertive community treatment.
