HUD Table Shows Similarities and Differences in Programs
HUD’s Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD) has provided a table designed to promote understanding of the similarities and differences between the new Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) program interim rule and the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP).
CPD notes that in developing the ESG interim rule, it drew on experience gained from HPRP, a temporary stimulus program that was part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).
The table focuses on the rapid re-housing and homelessness prevention components of ESG. It does not address the emergency shelter or street outreach components of ESG because those were not eligible activities under HPRP.
A dozen topic areas are covered by the table, including:
- Rapid re-housing eligibility criteria
- Homeless prevention eligibility criteria
- Housing relocation and stabilization services
- Rental assistance
