Award Description: The purpose of the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-housing Program (HPRP) is to provide assistance to households that have been identified as at-risk and who otherwise without such assistance would experience homelessness. HPRP is also intended to rapidly re-house individuals and families who are homeless as defined by Section 103 of the McKinney Vento Homeless Assistance Act (42 U.S.C 11302). HPRP will support two distinct program models, Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing. However, both program models should meet locally defined needs. HPRP resources will be targeted and prioritized to serve households that are most in need of assistance and are most likely to achieve stable housing after the program funds terminate. Prevention programs will target households that have a demonstrated housing crisis and that present with imminent risk of losing their permanent housing. Program components include intensive outreach to identify eligible households, thorough assessment of the needs of each household, assistance to households in expanding housing options and resources, provision of both short-term and medium term financial assistance, and provision of the supportive services needed to assist the family in achieving housing stability. Rapid Re-housing programs will assist homeless households move into stable housing. Program components should involve housing location, financial assistance, and support services. Such programs will give careful consideration to the coordination of community resources to ensure that program participants are linked to any necessary on-going assistance.
