Rapid Re-Housing provides rental assistance and security deposits as well as landlord advocacy, assistance with finding affordable housing and case management assistance for families and/or individuals who are homeless with the goal of moving them into permanent housing.
What is Rapid Rehousing?
This is a Federally funded Grant program for HOMELESS persons.
Please note that this program is always subject to fund availability. Sometimes we have no control over whether there will be funds available even if you are approved for funding. We do our best, but sometimes we must wait for reimbursement from the funders before we can get the cost of your housing funded.
ALL individuals who will be living in the proposed unit and the unit itself must qualify based on specific Income Limits and Fair Market Rents.
IMPORTANT: If you are cooking for yourself, purchasing your own food and responsible for only you and your expenses, even if you live as a roommate under the same roof with others, you qualify as the Head of your own Household. AND...If you take possession before you are approved, you become ineligible for funding.
We may fund 1st, last month and/or security deposits on housing. We may also help with utility deposits and back payments to clear an account, if needed. This is meant to be a short to medium term (1-9 month) supportive program. We review each case on its own merits and may, but are not required to offer additional monthly financial assistance.

THE RAPID REHOUSING PROGRAM IS BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
Contact us: Phone: 530.344.1864 | Email: email@example.com |
Late appointment arrivals may result in rescheduled appointments. This process usually takes 1 to 3 face to face meetings in order to get all the documentation we need to proceed through to approval(s) stage.
All required documents must be submitted at the time of the scheduled appointment.
Incomplete packages will require scheduling a new appointment.
YOU MUST BRING ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS!
Failure to supply sufficient information will result in your appointment being rescheduled.
We can NOT turn your package in for approval without the proper documentation.
DOCUMENTS REQUIRED AT FACE TO FACE APPOINTMENTS
(We will also work with you to gather docs as needed)
PLEASE NOTE: Our team will have to physically inspect the living unit prior to submission for application approval. If you are trying to get into an apartment, please know that we will try to expedite all of our processes, but including gathering all documentation with proper signatures and a signed lease takes anywhere from 10 – 15 business days to get funds into a landlord’s hands. Remember, this is subject to funds availability.
THIS IS NOT EMERGENCY SHELTER OR EMERGENCY HOUSING.
IT IS Rapid, but not necessarily immediate.
There are 3 Phases to this program:
PRE-APPROVAL/Initial Application Process
This is a face to face meeting where you and ALL adult household members will be asked to complete our county’s Coordinated Entry Process and be entered into the Homeless Management Information System. We ask you for homelessness history and enter your data into our online database system for our records. You will be filling out a number of forms to verify eligibility and at this face to face appointment we must receive all documents – including the signed lease to proceed if we are to ask for funding.
ONCE APPROVED, we will process our internal paperwork and request the funds to get you into the unit. This can take up to 10-15 business days. We will contact the landlord and let them know if you’ve been approved. Remember, this is subject to funds availability.
CASE MANAGEMENT PHASE
ALL RRH funding recipients participate in regular Case Management Services.
These can be, but are not limited to the following:
