On the Edge
How HUD Can Improve the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program
This report offers an in-depth analysis of the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program, created by the Department of Housing and Urban Development with $1.5 billion in funding as a part of the 2009 economic stimulus package. "On the Edge" assesses the program's effectiveness and makes recommendations for future HUD homelessness prevention efforts. It is based on a survey of 121 service providers one year after HPRP funds were made available.
