Last year, Rapid Rehousing projects within our CoC helped over 300 people find permanent housing.
Rapid Rehousing (RRH) is time-limited housing assistance for literally homeless households who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate residence at intake. The amount of aid varies per client depending on funds available, client’s needs, and program guidelines.
The total period of financial assistance for RRH is limited to 24 months within any three years. The 24-month limit applies to case management as well. It includes those who are currently literally homeless (shelter residents, living in other situations not meant for human habitation), and those exiting an institution (where they resided temporarily) with no housing resources.
Rapid Rehousing (RRH)is funded through the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development’s (DHCD) Virginia Homeless Solutions Program (VHSP) two-year grant program and the SSVF Program through the Veterans Administration.
