Homeless Crisis Response Program (HCRP)

The Region 13 and 15 Homeless Crisis Response Programs (HCRP) and Rapid Re-Housing programs provide services and financial assistance for those experiencing homelessness to be re-housed and stabilized. HCRP is a two-year program funded by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) and administered by the Ohio Department of Services Agency (ODSA). Assistance is provided to help households obtain affordable housing and achieve self-sustainability. Compliance with the case management is a requirement to receive assistance. HCRP does not provide long term rent assistance. It is not intended to serve those who need long term and/or intensive support.

Rapid Re-Housing Program 

Rapid Re-Housing is informed by a Housing First approach that is a critical part of a community’s effective homeless crisis response system. Rapid re-housing rapidly connects families and individuals experiencing homelessness to permanent housing that may include various forms of assistance tailored to the client’s needs.

Rapid Re-Housing:

  • Assists people who are literally homeless and ensures quick linkage to housing assistance, based on the client’s needs, preferences, and resource availability.
  • Helps clients who will remain literally homeless “but for” rapid re-housing assistance.
  • Prioritizes clients applying for assistance who have more severe service needs and barriers to shelter.
