Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Rehousing

Eligibility for Services
The state-contracted program will serve families or individuals who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

• Discharge within two weeks from an institution in which the person has been a resident for more than 180 days (including prisons, mental health institutions, and hospitals);
• Residency in housing that has been condemned by housing officials and is no longer meant for human habitation;
• Sudden and significant loss of income;
• Sudden and significant increase in utility costs;
• Severe housing cost burden (greater than 50 percent of income for housing costs);
• Homeless in last 12 months;
• Young head of household (under 25 with children or pregnant);
• Current or past involvement with child welfare, including foster care;
• Extremely low income (less than 30 percent of Area Median Income).
• High overcrowding (the number of persons exceeds health and/or safety standards for the housing unit size); and
