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.
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.
