Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP)

The Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP) is focused on housing for homeless and at-risk households. The program is designed to provide temporary financial assistance and housing relocation and stabilization services to individuals and families who are homeless or would be homeless but for this assistance.

The funds under this program are intended to target two populations of persons facing housing instability:

* Individuals and families who are currently in housing but are at risk of becoming homeless and need temporary rent or utility assistance to prevent them from becoming homeless, or assistance to move to another unit (prevention), and

* Individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness (residing in emergency or transitional shelters or on the street) and need temporary assistance in order to obtain housing and retain it (rapid re-housing).
