Rapid Rehousing

Rapid rehousing (RRH) is a permanent housing intervention designed to help individuals and families quickly exit homelessness by obtaining and  permanent housing and remaining there. RRH programs operate with a Housing First approach, focusing on getting people into housing and then addressing barriers once they are in their unit. RRH funds can be flexible, offering short- and medium-term rental subsidies, security and utility deposits, and supportive services to quickly move people into housing.
