Rapid re-housing is a homeless assistance strategy that provides homeless families with immediate, temporary assistance to help them return to permanent housing and to promote their housing and economic stability. This approach has been growing in popularity for 10 years. In 2007, in response to the growing emphasis on rapid re-housing, the U.S. Congress appropriated $23.75 million for the Rapid Rehousing for Homeless Families Demonstration (RRHD) program. As part of its 2008 competitive application for McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act funding, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded RRHD grants to 23 communities to serve homeless families with moderate barriers to housing.
