Abstract

The Understanding Rapid Re-housing study seeks to shed light on the current state of rapid re-housing (RRH) regarding participant outcomes as well as program practices in different types of communities. RRH, time limited rental assistance for people experiencing homelessness, is an increasingly popular option for quickly moving individuals and families out of emergency shelter and into housing. The short summary paper “Understanding Rapid Re-housing: What Did We Learn?”, draws on the totality of the research undertaken in the Understanding Rapid Re-housing study, synthesizes the study’s findings on program design, funding sources, and outcomes in an accessible brief, and highlights what still remains to be learned about RRH.

Keywords: Assisted Housing - General, Housing Choice Vouchers/Section 8 & Project-Based Section 8, Housing and Supportive Services for People with Special Needs and the Homeless
