HPRP Program History

Launched in October 2009, Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing (HPRP) offered housing solutions for families and individuals who were homeless or at risk of becoming homeless in Sacramento County.  Three core HPRP providers-Volunteers of America, The Salvation Army, and Lutheran Social Services-rapidly transitioned participants to long-term housing stability with short-term assistance.  In all, over 2,500 households were assisted.

Sacramento’s HPRP aligned a total of $11 million in one-time funding.  Funding included HPRP and Community Development Block Grant funds from SHRA, Community Services Block Grant funds from SETA, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families-Emergency Contingency Funds from the County of Sacramento, and priviate donations through the Sacramento Region Community Foundation.

Using a common assessment tool to evaluate the risk of homelessness and barriers to housing stability, HPRP providers targeted assistance to individuals and families whose barriers to housing were high enough that they were not able to house themselves without assistance, but were low enough that they were successful in this limited-assistance program.
