HPRP Year 3 Summary and APR Narrative Analysis Reports Now Posted on the HUD Exchange


HUD is excited to announce the publication of two reports providing a final overview and analysis of the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-housing Program (HPRP). HPRP was a $1.5 billion grant program authorized under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and administered by HUD. The program provided 535 state, local, and territory government jurisdictions with funding to be expended over a 3-year period. Ultimately, HPRP provided assistance to over 1.3 million people experiencing a housing crisis or homelessness.

These reports provide a resource for communities and stakeholders to both reference lessons learned from the implementation of HPRP to inform the development of local programs moving forward, as well as to record the details of this historic effort.

HPRP Year 3 & Final Summary Report:


This document is the third and final summary report for HPRP. The first and second year summaries can be found on the HUD Exchange HPRP Summary and Status Reports page. This report goes beyond the scope of the first and second summary reports in that it provides a national picture of HPRP data, history, and accomplishments from its beginning through its third and final year, which ended on September 30, 2012. This summary is a valuable resource for understanding HPRP’s overall impact on individuals and families nationwide over its 3-year course. It also provides a record of HPRP’s significant national impact, the efforts by the individuals involved with its success, and offers lessons learned from its implementation.

HPRP Qualitative Analysis of Year 3 APR Narrative Responses Report:


This report provides a qualitative analysis of the narrative responses submitted by HUD’s HPRP grantees in their third and final Annual Performance Report (APR). The APR responses came from 399 grantees and cover the period from October 1, 2011 to September 30, 2012. By analyzing the successes and challenges grantees faced while implementing HPRP, this report aims to inform the design and implementation of projects funded through the Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Program and the rapid re-housing component of the Continuum of Care (CoC) Program. Not only is this information useful to HUD, but it can assist ESG and CoC recipients and subrecipients as they develop guidance, tools, and other resources for their programs.
