Rapid re-housing is an intervention designed to help individuals and families to quickly exit homelessness and return to permanent housing. Rapid re-housing assistance is offered without preconditions (such as employment, income, absence of criminal record, or sobriety) and the resources and services provided are tailored to the unique needs of the household. The three core components of Rapid re-housing include:
- find housing fast for an individual or family experiencing homelessness
- help pay for the housing through a subsidy
- connect to jobs and other services that help retain housing
