The Homeless Intervention Program
The purpose of the Homeless Intervention Program (HIP) is to provide temporary rental or mortgage assistance and supportive services related to housing and financial literacy issues for individuals and families experiencing a financial crisis due to unforeseen circumstances.
The goal of HIP is to prevent homelessness by assisting individuals and families in maintaining permanent housing through financial assistance and education related to housing and financial literacy.
The Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) provides funding to local governments and nonprofit agencies to ensure that HIP assistance and services are available to citizens in every jurisdiction in Virginia.
If you are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, there may be a HIP provider in your area. >> PDF
