    HPRP

    HPRP PURPOSE

    HPRP Logo

    The Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP) was created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to provide financial assistance and services to either prevent individuals and families from becoming homeless or help those who are experiencing homelessness to be quickly re-housed and stabilized. HPRP is designed to provide one-time or temporary housing assistance and services to households who would be homeless but for the assistance and who have a likelihood of being stable in housing after HPRP assistance ends.

    In Dayton and Montgomery County the program is being implemented under the Homeless Solutions Community 10-Year Plan which recommends developing a comprehensive Homelessness Prevention system as a key principle. Community outcomes for HPRP include reducing the number of households who enter the homeless system, reducing the length of time households spend in shelter, and providing sufficient assistance to prevent entry into shelter after HPRP assistance ends.

    Public Disclosure

    Miami Valley Housing Opportunities (MVHO) is requesting a waiver from HUD for a potential conflict of interest due to their role in the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Rehousing Program (HPRP). 

     MVHO provides housing for persons with mental illness, chemical dependency and other disabilities in Montgomery County.   MVHO has several clients living in their properties who need HPRP assistance to avoid eviction and subsequent homelessness.  MVHO also provides a "fee for service" for HPRP, performing habitability and lead inspections, when required for eligible clients.    

    The potential conflict exists due to MVHO’s relationship as a sub-grantee with the City of Dayton and Montgomery County who are the grantees of HPRP.  HUD requires that a waiver be requested for HPRP grantees/sub-grantees who own housing in order for them to receive HPRP financial assistance for eligible tenants. 

    MVHO provides assurance that if the waiver is granted, the interest of HPRP clients will be protected in the following manner:

    • All HPRP guidelines will be followed.
    • This request is intended for prevention assistance for existing MVHO tenants.  If an HPRP client is looking for a unit, they will be provided with as many housing options as are currently available.  Clients will not be steered to MVHO units.
    • HPRP assistance will only be provided to eligible MVHO tenants for rent arrears.
