County’s Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program
The County is operating a Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-housing program, through the Community Development Commission’s U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development grant.
The County’s program is designed to help individuals, couples, and families who:
- Have a low income (household income must be at or below 50 percent of Area Median income)
- Are in danger of losing the place they are renting or have recently lost their place to live
- Live in the unincorporated area of Los Angeles County or one of the 49 participating cities
HPRP can help pay for costs such as:
- Overdue rent
- Past-due gas and electric bills
- Security deposit for a new apartment
- Utility turn-on fees
The program may also offer:
- A short-term rental subsidy
- Mediation services
- Consumer counseling
- Legal services
To determine eligibility for the County’s HPRP program, use the Los Angeles County Housing Resource Center’s online screening tool.
If you do not live in one of the County’s unincorporated areas or the 49 cities included in the County’s program, check the Los Angeles Homeless Services website for other programs in the area. Each area was able to design their own program to meet their area needs, so the services may differ from the County’s.
