Funding for the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP) has all been expended. This Program is no longer available.
The HPRP Program can provide assistance to households who are about to become homeless and quickly re-house those that are already in a homeless situation. Funded by President Obama’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), HPRP targets those that have been suddenly affected by the recent economic downturn and will have stable housing once assistance is over.
To prevent the loss of existing housing or quickly re-house an already homeless household, you may receive case management and housing search assistance. In addition, financial assistance is available for rent payment, including back rent, security and utility deposits and payment of utility bills. Finally, qualified participants will have access to legal services necessary to keep them in their homes. The amount of financial aid you may receive and how long you may participate in HPRP is subject to Federal and County guidelines and is based on your unique situation.
To be eligible for this program, you must meet all of the following strict criteria:
|Household Size||Maximum Household Income
HPRP assistance is in the form of a grant - assistance does not have to be repaid. Clients are expected to comply with all program requirements and may be discharged from the program for non-compliance.
In addition, to ensure a successful housing outcome, every person that participates in HPRP program activities must attend group education workshops, as appropriate, on the topics of Money Management; Energy Conservation; Renters Education Programs; and Credit Counseling.
