Homelessness Prevention And Rapid Re-housing (HPRP) Program

The Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-housing program will provide financial assistance/services to prevent individuals and families from becoming homeless and help those who are experiencing homelessness to be quickly re-housed and stabilized. The funds under this program are intended to target individuals and families who would be homeless but for this assistance.

Maryland will receive $22.4 million, including $5.6 million that will be distributed by DHCD.


Only local governments, certified lead agencies for Continuums of Care and nonprofit organizations that have been approved by their local jurisdictions as applicants are eligible for funding under the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program.
