Title: Reversing the Homeless Trend: A Case Study of the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program in Lane County, Oregon
Author: Bishop, Korrin Lillian
Abstract: The Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP) is a $1.5 billion stimulus program that came out of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Funds are administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and were distributed to qualifying communities to provide Housing First and housing stabilization services to individuals and families in need. Lane County, Oregon received a total of $1,490,050 to coordinate HPRP services for the Lane County community. This research explores the following question: Has the HPRP model effectively built long-term, sustainable solutions to homelessness in Lane County, Oregon? It assesses the highlights and challenges of the program’s implementation and how these relate to the program’s influence on future policy and long-term solutions to the homelessness epidemic both locally and nationally.
