Rapid Re-housing for Single Adults

Project Type: Housing

Project Stage: In Progress

Despite its affluence, Santa Clara County has one of the largest homeless populations in the country. While homeless individuals nationwide face numerous challenges in obtaining and maintaining stable housing, homeless persons in Santa Clara County face significant local obstacles. The County has one of the most challenging rental markets in the nation, with a staggering combination of high rental rates, an increasingly expensive rental market, and historically low vacancy rates. LEO is evaluating the effect of rapid re-housing services on housing outcomes for homeless persons. Rapid re-housing provides enrolled clients with a progressive rental assistance subsidy that is meant to ease homeless persons’ transition back into stable housing. The value and duration of the subsidy depends on the income of each client. In addition to the rental assistance, participants receive case management services that include assistance in finding an apartment.
