The Homeless Prevention Program (HPP) is a state-funded program for the prevention of homelessness in Virginia. The program is designed to divert households from homelessness by providing targeted and limited assistance to households who are likely to otherwise become homeless.

The program goal is to provide effective and efficient assistance to prevent new cases of homelessness. The program is intended to be administered as a community-based resource that maximizes mainstream resources and prevents households from becoming homeless.


Eligible applicants include units of local governments, nonprofits, planning district commissions (PDCs) and public housing authorities (PHA’s).

Eligible costs categories include financial assistance, housing relocation and stabilization services, Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) cost and administrative costs.
