Family Re-Housing and Stabilization Program

frsp

The Family Re-Housing and Stabilization Program (FRSP), or Rapid Rehousing, is a DHS program designed to provide short-term rental assistance to homeless families in DC.

The rental subsidies are provided for up to 12 months with a reevaluation of eligibility every 4 months. Applicants must demonstrate that there is a reasonable likelihood they will be able to pay full rental costs following the FRSP assistance and remain stably housed.

Nationally, Rapid Rehousing has seen positive outcomes. At this time, FRSP in DC has served 305 families with an average length of service of 5 months. According to the Community Partnership, 96.7% of clients who exited the program were able to remain stably housed.

Clients are referred to CHGM through The Community Partnership  and work with our case managers to set goals for greater housing and economic self-sufficiency. Our staff and partners are available to provide employment preparation services, housing search assistance, transportation assistance, mental health services, and educational or vocational training, and related services to help make the transition to self-sufficient living possible.

 

CHGM’s housing program participants are selected on a referral basis through the Virginia Williams Resource Center. Homeless families and individuals in Washington, DC looking for shelter services should contact:
