HUD Announces that the Recovery Act’s HPRP Has Helped More than One Million Americans Avoid Homelessness
September 14, 2011
On Tuesday, HUD Secretary Donovan announced a major milestone for HPRP. The $1.5 billion initiative funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, has prevented or ended homelessness for 1 million Americans.
Since 2009, HPRP has helped communities keep families in their homes and quickly find places for those already in shelters or on the streets to call home. HPRP gives equips local grantees with the tools they need to make a difference for families in a pinch – tools like short- and medium-term rental assistance, help with security deposits and utility payments, legal services, and case management.
