Rapid rehousing (RRH) is a permanent housing intervention designed to help individuals and families to quickly exit homelessness and obtain and remain in permanent housing. RRH programs operate with a Housing First approach, focusing on getting people into housing and then addressing barriers once 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.
TAC is a national leader in guiding communities to integrate rapid rehousing into their homeless crisis response systems by making RRH a system-wide primary intervention, strengthening program design, creating evaluation mechanisms, and training staff.
