Application deadline today, next one mid-July

The homeless prevention assistance available for those who are homeless or facing eviction is accepting applications through today, June 18. Another application process is scheduled from July 12-16.

Area residents may apply for the federal assistance through the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program, or HPRP. They should call 2-1-1 for preliminary screening during the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Income cannot exceed the following program limits, established by the federal government:

FY 2010 1 Person 2 Persons 3 Persons 4 Persons 5 Persons 6 Persons 7 Persons 8 Persons
50% AMI $22,300 $25,500 $28,300 $31,850 $34,400 $36,950 $39,500 $42,050


“We know there are people suffering from lack of income to meet their housing needs,” said Mary K. Vaughn, Director of the Housing and Community Services, which is administering the funds. “So far, this assistance has helped 62 households. It could be the difference that keeps a family or a person off the streets.”

Recipients who have benefited from the program are available to talk to the media upon request. Please contact Vaughn at 462-3795.

The HPRP program is funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
