Are You Currently Homeless and Looking For Housing?
Rapid Rehousing is an intervention designed to help individuals and families quickly exit homelessness and return to permanent housing. Assistance is offered to the literally homeless without preconditions such as employment, income, absence of criminal record, or sobriety. The resources and services provided are tailored to the household’s unique needs.
Rapid re-housing assistance is limited to literally homeless households. These households lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence. This includes those currently residing in a shelter and those exiting an institution where they resided temporarily for 90 days or fewer, with no housing resources.
