Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP

In September of 2008, members of the House along with several members of the Housing and Urban Development committee began talks to discuss changes in how homelessness is characterized and defined in the eyes of America. Since then, efforts have come to pass in the regards of preventive responses considering how homelessness is characterized by the Housing and Urban Development committee.

Under federal guidelines when considering someone that expresses the defined characterization of homelessness: “A homeless individual shall be eligible for assistance under any program provided by this chapter, only if the individual complies with the income eligibility requirements otherwise applicable to such program.”(Title 42, Chapter 119, Subchapter I; 11302. General definition of homeless individual)

The United States has the largest number of homeless women and children that has been reported since the Great Depression, have so many families been without homes. Homelessness became a significant social problem in the 1980s. The number of people experiencing homelessness has risen steadily to the present levels of three to four million annually.

As the start of 2009 and a new presidency begins the approach considered by this nation is that homelessness can be ended before it becomes a permanent feature of the national landscape. From that thought congress in its 111th session has introduced The Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP),” under Title XII of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The Rapid Re-Housing is an innovative program that facilitates rapid re-housing by relying on early identification and resolution of a family’s or individual’s “housing barriers” and providing the assistance necessary to facilitate their return to permanent housing.

As Homeless Prevention is expressed, rapidly re-housing those that have been threaten by job loss and foreclosure by boosting the economic approach upon a federal response is the best option as of yet. Housing has become affordable to the point that this is the best case scenario to place an impactful consideration towards the employment and housing industries while they are pliable regarding a public view.
