This Notice informs the public that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has submitted to OMB, for emergency processing, a proposed information collection for the Homelessness Prevention Fund, which is authorized under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009. This new program provides $1.5 billion of formula grant funding for the provision of short-term or medium-term rental assistance, housing relocation and stabilization services, and other appropriate activities for homelessness prevention and rapid re-housing of persons who have become homeless. HUD will administer these funds as the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP) and require a substantial amendment to the grantee's Consolidated Plan 2008 Annual Action Plan as a condition of receiving funds. HPRP grant amounts will be determined by a formula authorized by Section 413 of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act and will be awarded by HUD to the following eligible grantees: states, metropolitan cities, and urban counties that receive over $500,000 according to the formula allocation, and territories, which receive 0.2% of the total allocation.
