Award Description: The purpose of the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP) is to provide homelessness prevention assistance to households who would otherwise become homeless, and to provide assistance to rapidly rehouse persons who are homeless as defined by section 103 of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 11302). The City of Long Beach expects to serve 355 households.
Project Description: The City of Long Beach (the 'City') plans to use HPRP funds for both homelessness prevention and rapid re-housing activities. The City has allocated funds to two sub recipient agencies, while retaining a portion of the HPRP funds for homelessness prevention activites, case management and HMIS data collection and evaluation. Together, these three agencies are expected to serve a total of 355 households, preventing homelessness for 300 households and ending homelessness for 70 households. (Please note that households may potentially qualify for and receive both homelessness prevention AND rapid re-housing assistance under this program. The City and its partner sub recipients are working to coordinate HPRP resources and stabilize the households as effectively as possible to minimize duplication in effort.) This will be achieved by providing a combination of financial assistance and services to families and individuals who are experiencing homelessness or at-risk of becoming homeless.
