MESA GETS FEDERAL HELP AIMED AT PREVENTING HOMELESSNESS The goal is to prevent people from becoming homeless and to quickly re-house those who are homeless.? The City of Mesa has signed a contract with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to receive approximately $1.4 million from the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP).? The three year program was created as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The program is designed for people who are about to be evicted or have their utilities disconnected.? Activities eligible for HPRP funding include short and medium-term rental assistance, security deposits, utility payments, moving assistance, legal services and housing search and placement.? People eligible for HPRP are individuals or families who are homeless or are about to become homeless, who earn at or below 50 percent of the area median income.? For a family of four, the area median income is $32,950.? Eligible program participants must have no alternative housing options and must lack financial resources and support networks needed to obtain or remain in housing.? All participants must have an initial consultation with a case manager.? The intent of the program is to provide temporary assistance, not long-term support.? HPRP is not a mortgage assistance program.? Congress has established other funds to assist homeowners.
