CoC Permanent Supportive Housing/Rapid Rehousing Programs

Permanent Supportive Housing

Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) is the new form of Shelter Plus Care under the HEARTH Act in 2009. PSH also serves populations that have been traditionally hard to reach – individuals and families experiencing homelessness with disabilities such as serious mental illness, chronic substance abuse, physical disabilities, and/or HIV/AIDS. The PSH program was built on the premise that housing and services need to be connected in order to ensure the stability of housing for this population. Consequently, PSH provides rental assistance that local sub-recipients must provide supportive services appropriate to the target population.

Permanent Supportive Housing for those who have a disability is designed to assist individuals and families experiencing homelessness and to provide the services needed to help such individuals move into permanent housing, with the goal of long-term stability. More broadly, the program is designed to promote community-wide planning and strategic use of resources to address homelessness; improve coordination and integration with mainstream resources and other efforts targeted to people experiencing homelessness; improve data collection and performance measurement; and allow each community to tailor its project(s) to the particular strengths and challenges within that community. The goals of the Permanent Supportive Housing Program are to assist individuals and families experiencing homelessness to maintain housing stability, maintain or increase income (earned and/or benefits), and obtain greater self-sufficiency.

Rapid Rehousing

The purpose of the CoC Rapid Rehousing Program is to provide assistance by rapidly re-housing persons who are homeless. HUD expects that these resources will be targeted and prioritized to serve households that are most in need of this temporary assistance and are most likely to achieve stable housing, whether subsidized or unsubsidized. It provides temporary financial assistance and services to individuals and families who are homeless or would be homeless but for this assistance.
