Rapid Re-Housing (RRH)
Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) is a strategy, informed by a housing first approach, that has been successfully used by many communities to reduce homelessness. Rapid re-housing rapidly connects families and individuals experiencing homelessness to permanent housing through a tailored package of assistance that may include the use of time-limited financial assistance and targeted supportive services.
Rapid rehousing programs help families and individuals living on the streets or in emergency shelters solve the practical and immediate challenges to obtaining permanent housing while reducing the amount of time they experience homelessness, avoiding a near-term return to homelessness, and linking to community resources that enable them to achieve housing stability in the long-term.
The Rapid Re-Housing Written Standards detail the target population, eligibility criteria, record keeping requirements and program requirements for ESG- and CoC-funded projects.Read More
