The JCCEO Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-housing Program (HPRP), in collaboration with partner agencies (including homeless shelter providers, housing counseling agencies, and Legal Services), functions as a provider of homelessness prevention assistance and assistance to rapidly re-house people who are or are at risk of becoming homeless. Homelessness prevention assistance includes rental assistance, credit repair, security deposit, utility payments (not phone or cable), legal assistance, moving and storage costs assistance, and temporary housing. Beyond homelessness prevention and rapid re-housing assistance, the JCCEO HPRP seeks to achieve long-term housing stabilization for program clients after the subsidy ends through intensive case management.
To be eligible for HPRP assistance, you must...
1) be homeless or at risk of becoming homeless;
2) live in Jefferson County; and
3) meet the low-income requirement for your family size.
